Updated: Jun 19

Do you ever thank people With a box of cookies!! Just do it, it’s even better than eating them. Well of course by that I mean, leave yourself 10 cookies to taste test you know! Cardamom, Almond&fig oatmeal cookies drizzled with dark chocolate. Off to delivering these before my kids get home then I will have to send a thank you card instead :)



Ingredients 1 stick plus 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened * 3/4 Cup brown sugar 1/2 Cup granulated sugar 2 Eggs 1 Tsp vanilla 1 tsp cardamom extract (optional)

1-1/2 Cup all-purpose flour 1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Tsp ground cardamom

1/2 Tsp salt

3 Cups quick Oats

1 Cup chopped dried figs

1 cup roughly chopped raw almonds

optional: 1/4 cup of good quality dark chocolate chopped

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. In your electric mixer beat butter and sugars on medium speed until creamy 2-3 minutes. Add eggs, cardamom extract if using and vanilla. Sift your dry ingredients In a separate bowl and gradually add them to the wet ingredients one cup at a time: flour, baking soda, cardamom and salt until moist. Add the Oats, and give it one more mix. Fold in the chopped figs and almonds. I used an ice cream scoop and dropped the cookie dough on a silicon lined cookie sheets (don’t grease your sheets). Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. At this point you can drizzle the cookies with the melted dark chocolate. Once the chocolate hardens you can pack them away. cookie is chewy in the center with crispy edges. Cookie will store well for a few days If tightly covered in a container.
