Compost Cookies

Compost cookie dough with the candy bars ready to mix in.
Did you see the "compost tea" in Twilight? Gross right? Make the jump to "Compost Cookies." Definitely a different kind of compost. These cookies seem to have popped right out of the 70's show "In Search Of!" They have taken on a kind legendary appeal (See the links below). I think however, the name should be "Leftover" Cookies. The idea is to use up bits and pieces of snack food leftovers. I added a little extra flour and reduced the salt by half. I did not put the cookies in the freezer.

They have a light texture and taste kind of like corn flakes, and malt. Got milk?

  1. So I guess my whole, bake at home for less additives and preservatives just went out the window with these cookies. I took some to work and responses went from good to too rich and too salty. Nobody liked them at home. I watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution last night and then threw the rest away.
