I had a lot of kumquats to use up so I thought how about kumquat cookies? I love chocolate and orange together and kumquats are even better because their rind bakes up like chewy candy! I hope you like them!

This only gets two stars because the idea of kumquat cookies is great. You can tell when you mix these up that they have too much flour, not enough shortening, leavening or sugar. I don't care if a cookie is really sweet, but it needs to taste like a cookie instead of a cross between a powder biscuit and a muffin, and it doesn't have enough shortening for either of those either. Take your favorite chocolate chip or oatmeal cookie recipe and add kumquats.
- 1 cup kumquat, diced small
- 2⁄3 cup butter, at room temperature
- 2⁄3 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 2⁄3 cup chocolate chips
- 2 cups flour (i like whole wheat pastry flour)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
