Rumpledoodles Aka Heffalump Cookies

"After watching The Heffalump movie a gazillion times with my daughter she insisted that we make the recipe that Disney provides at the end of the bonus section - I haven't tried them yet - but they sound really super yummy! I guessed on the prep/cook and servings - please let me know if I'm way off and I'll be sure to fix it! WARNING! I JUST MADE THIS RECIPE AND THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY WRONG WITH IT! I AM LEAVING IT HERE WITH THE HOPE THAT SOMEONE WILL FIND THE PROBLEM - PERHAPS I COPIED IT DOWN WRONG??? THANKS!!"

Questions & Replies

  1. Which "oats" do you use? 1-minute Quick oats OR Old-fashioned oats?


  1. howdy I used to make this with my grandma when I was little. ours turned out gooey and really good and was a huge hit with my family,to get a gooey texture use brown sugar. :)
  2. Make sure you add the 1 cup sugar when you make this recipe. The sugar is listed in the ingredients, but it is not mentioned in the step by step directions.
  3. We really liked these at my house. We had a tea party with them. The recipe on the DVD calls for unsalted butter--that's why it calls for as much salt as it does. If you are using salted butter, reduce or eliminate the salt. These dough is crumbly, but bakes together well. They are also pretty sweet so I think I will reduce the sugar next time or maybe use honey instead as that seems more Pooh-ish.
  4. This recipe is fine, just be prepared for a crumbly mixture thats all. I just push them together on the tray rather than roll (the roughing-it-in-the-woods effect). Kids love them :)
  5. This recipe is correct--you are just witnessing lawyers at work. I suspect there are no eggs in the recipe as in the DVD the people making the cookies say it is okay to lick your fingers while making the cookies. Raw eggs carry the threat of salmonella, so I am guessing that is why they aren't there. I have made these with and without the egg. With an egg results in a more standard product. As for the fact that Lumpy asks for biscuits, that is probably because he is an English heffalump, and in England, these sorts of treats are known as biscuits. Either way you make them, kids love them. You can't go wrong, especially if you whip them up right after they watch the DVD.
