Anyone who knows me well knows that baking is a big part of my life. I bake whenever I have the chance which is unfortunate for my waistline but great for my friends and family! However, I also just LOVE baked goods in general, and am always looking for new treats and recipes to try out!
Alright so – if you have ever been to the Tall Grass Bakery at The Forks you know their baking is thebomb.com.
I discovered my insane addiction to their cinnamon buns awhile ago, then my mom recommended their Folk Fest cookies. If you have ever tried these things they are DELICIOUS. Seriously, get up right now and go get one if you have never tried these bad boys.
I realized quickly that I would soon go broke buying baked goods if I did not find a recipe for these cookies, and I happened to find one online! So, I thought I would share it here and spread the joy because these treats are great for fall! (or any other time of the year if you are me)
Excuse my writing it’s atrocious.
Okay so! I obviously start by getting out my kitchenaid mixer. Honestly, I could write an entire post on this thing alone but I would begin to question my sanity even more then I already do.
From there I preheat my oven to 350 and began by mixing both the sugars and the butter together in the mixer. From there – I added the water, vanilla, and eggs to the batter. Continue to stir.
I then added all dry ingredients. On a side note, all the yummy stuff (unsweetened shredded coconut, oats, flax seeds, sunflower seeds) I got at bulk barn. I got HUGE amounts for future recipes and paid less then 6 dollars for everything. Bulk Barn FOR THE WIN.
Once everything is mixed together the batter should have a slighty sticky consistency. I then covered my bowl with saran wrap and placed it in the fridge. I chilled the batter for about 30-45 minutes.
After chilling, I grabbed a table spoon and scooped out my dough. I would recommend making smaller balls of dough then usual, then flattening them slightly. From there, the suggestion is that you bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes.
And it is as simple as that! I cooked mine for 12 minutes and 30 seconds and it was the perfect amount of time! Of course that all depends on your personal cookie preference. Below I will post all of the exact measurements for the recipe!
Folk Fest Cookie Recipe:
3/4 cup butter – 3/4 cup brown sugar – 1/3 cup white sugar (or stevia!)
