Hard boiled is the new raw!

Oh yes, another hard boiled egg cookie! This time we invited oatmeal, raisins and walnuts to join the party! And what a great party it was!

I meant to have written this post earlier, but I do have to work sometimes. Haven't you read my last post where I gave a Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe made with hard boilded egg? Well did you think me, Anna and Katrina would finish there? Oh no! We then made an Oatmeal version!

This time the 3 of us came up with 3 slightly different recipes and although I haven't tasted theirs I can say they were probably equally delicious. In fact Katrina that is a chocolate girl said that from all the cookies she made using hard boiled eggs, this one was her favourite!

Moist yet crumbly interior. Yummy!

AMAZING HARD BOILED EGG OATMEAL COOKIES (Small Batch)

  • 2.4 oz all purpose flour (1/2 cup)
  • 2 ounces butter (4 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 of a hard boiled egg or 1 tbsp egg cooked in the microwave
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup oatmeal (slightly ground)
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp raisins
Melt butter and add both sugars and honey. Mix well and add the cooked egg passed thru a sieve or finelly grated and the vanilla. Combine well and mix in all the powders: flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Lastly add the walnuts and raisins. Take to the frigde for at least 15m, so the dough hardens a bit and you can shape 2 big round balls. Bake in a 350ºF (180ºC) pre heated over for 15-20m (mine took 17m).

That was my version, check Anna's Oatmeal Cookies here and Katrina's here!

Now do you think that would be the end of the hard boiled egg madness? Nop, it wasn't! Anna still experimented with an amazing looking Double Chocolate Hard Boiled Egg Cookie! Check it out here! I have yet to make some, but Katrina allready gave them a try and aproved! Check the ones she made here, plus some more Oatmeal ones made with whole wheat flour! Don't my cookie friends rock?!

Maybe we're a bit hard boiled egged out now, so I think we will go back to baking with raw eggs again!

Before I drown myself in work again I would like to thank 3 nice girls for 3 nice awards! Mão na Massa sent me the Prémio Dardos, Lisa gave me the Chocoholic Award (really Lisa, how did you guess?) and Alexa awarded me the Excellent blog award! Thank you so much!

Now go boil some eggs, go!

I have NEVER heard of using hard boiled eggs. I will have to break out of my shell and make these! They look mighty tasty!

Emiline said...

I still have to try the first recipe. First I need a recipe on how to make a hard boiled egg. Haha. I'm not kidding. I'll figure it out.

I love oatmeal raisin cookies! I bought some ice cream with that flavor.

Heather said...

Tanya said...

These cookies are on my short list of things to bake (along with the chocolate chip ones). They look so yummy inside! Congrats on all those awards.

Dee said...

Eggs-quisite! Gotta get cracking soon :)

Katrina said...

dee,
GREAT comment! Love it!
Rita,
They look YUMMY! I love these cookies, oh, I've probably said that, especially if you read my blog. Must stop making them. It wouldn't be so hard if one of my sons didn't love hard boiled eggs so much that I almost always have them on hand.
Must move on! I made muffins today. My name is Katrina and I'm a HBE cookie addict. Rita, will you be my sponsor? hehe
Thanks for the mentions and links to my blog on your post!

Joanna said...

Cakebrain said...

I love the pic of the cross-section of the cookie! The texture looks amazing! This hard boiled thing could be revolutionary!

Well aren't you just a sweetheart for getting me my 50 :) It's the little things in life, Rita... and I remember stuff like this :)

So the hard boiled madness continues. I think with oatmeal being my favorite cookie, I'll have to give the small batch a test run. Think it'll blow Mom's mind next week?

Ann said...

Okay....that looks really moist inside...and soft...which makes me a little crazy while looking at it. YUM.
