Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Ingredients

• 1 Cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature• 8 Oz milk chocolate, chopped into 1 inch squares
• 1 Cup light brown sugar, packed• &#190 Cup pecans, chopped
• 1 egg yolk• &#190 Cup dried cranberries, chopped
• 1  tsp vanilla extract• &#188 Cup flaked coconut
• 2 Cup all purpose flour
• &#188 tsp salt

Instructions

Set egg up for an indirect cook and stabalize at 350°.
In a medium bowl, mix the butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla together with a stiff spoon until the batter is creamy.
Gradually mix in the flour until well blended, scraping the sides of the bowl down, as necessary.
In a small bowl, mix the pecans, cranberries and coconut together and set aside.
Transfer the batter to a 9 by 13 inch baking dish and flatten evenly with a rubber spatula (a LeCreuset enameled cast iron works VERY well in the egg).

Bake toffee batter until slightly browned, about 20 to 25 minutes.
Remove from cooker and immediately place chocolate pieces on the top of the cookie, gently spreading to an even coverage as it melts.
Sprinkle the melted chocolate with the mixed nutty fruit mixture (you can use as little or as much as you prefer, but I like a fairly heavy coating).
Refrigerate at least an hour before serving and then cut into small squares. The longer the refrigeration period, the better.

Notes

Nuts and dried fruit can be substituted to your favorites. If you prefer walnuts, use them. If you like dried apricots instead of cranberries, go for it! Be creative and mix things up to your liking.
Enjoy!
