Recipe by Julesong
For serious garlic lovers only! I know... these sound just too weird to make, but really, if you're the adventurous sort and you think there's no such thing as "too much garlic," you'll want to try these. I got the recipe on the somewhere on the net years ago.
- 10 fresh garlic cloves
- water, boiling
- 1⁄2 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup light brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vanilla
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1⁄4 cups chocolate chips
Directions See How It's Made
- Drop garlic cloves into boiling water for about 5 minutes until tender; peel cloves and chop, then soak in maple syrup for 20 to 30 minutes.
- While cloves are soaking, cream together the butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
- Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, then add to cream mixture; stir the chocolate chips into the mixture (you can add a 1/2 cup of chopped nuts at this time, if you like).
- Pour the garlic and syrup through a strainer, draining the syrup, and add the chopped cloves to cookie batter; stir well.
- Drop the cookie batter by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly browned (careful not to overcook!).
- Remove from oven and cool on racks.
- Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
