You might not know this, but I have to tell you that my family and I are HUGE fans of The Walking Dead.
If you're also a fan, I PROMISE I won't write any spoilers in this post. The only thing you need to know is that in last week's episode (episode 513) Carol made some cookies and they were very popular, especially with one little boy.
Continue below to find out how you can make your own batch of Carol's Cookies!
In a world facing the zombie apocalyse, you can pretty much assume that the ingredients for delicious cookies would be scarce. Somehow, the character Carol was able to create an absolutely delicious basic cookie recipe using only what she had on hand.
She didn't have eggs so she used applesauce as a binding agent. I know I've used this as a substitute for eggs before in quite a few cookie recipes and it works splendidly.
Judging from the recipe she also did her best to conserve the ingredients she has on hand – she uses only about 1/4 of a cup or 1/4 tsp for much of the recipe.
Part of her secret to these yummy cookies was to add 1/4 of a large chocolate bar. The recipe doesn't specify exactly what kind of chocolate bar she used so I opted for using a plain milk chocolate – I would assume this might be the easiest kind to find during a zombie apocalypse.
She only uses 1/4 of the chocolate bar so the cookies don't really come out “chocolatey” but it certainly adds some flavour, considering she seemed to be without some spices to add to the dough.
If you'd like, I think Carol wouldn't mind if you added a pinch of cinnamon or ginger to the recipe just to add a bit more flavour. I think she would have if she had it available. 🙂
These were moist and chewy and were quite good considering how basic the ingredients are!
We enjoyed these cookies – but my son especially enjoyed them so I think Carol would be very pleased with that! 🙂
I encourage you to try these out for yourself! Check out the recipe below!
NOTE: I was NOT compensated for this post. I created this post as a tribute to one of my favourite shows. The recipe was created by AMC and I have just made these cookies according to their recipe.
Are you a fan of The Walking Dead and would you try Carol's cookies?
