    Since the steel cut oats take substantially longer to cook (btw they are horrible microwaved), I wonder if they will work in the cookies.  I am curious to see how they turn out for you.

    I just looked at both labels.  So the steel cut cook faster.  They are both whole grain.  So I asked myself why the hell would it take longer to cook the old fashioned, which are "rolled oats".   I think I got it.  The steel cut are cut across the grain.  The rolled are cut, I guess, with the grain.

    Other than that, they are the same.  I can see the benefit of old fashioned being in theory having more texture.  But probably splitting hairs here.

    Took some time to go where I have been meaning to stop for years which is about 20 mins from me. 


    It is a production plant and they specialize primarily on agricultural molasses.  That explains the warehouse and the containers in the next pictures. Apparently they put out the clean out from their machines for local farmers (next picture).  They also have a division for human food consumption. They have a small outlet store which you can see in the second picture below (just above the car). 


    I went in and found out they are closing that store on 12/31. When I left to go this morning I was thinking of getting pint of molasses. That’s it. 


    Everything was half off, so I picked up a few things and a bit larger quantity than I would normally have bought.  What am I going to do with 1/2 gallon of molasses? I do not know. But for $5.75 the price was right. I think I can make a lot of cookies with it. 


    Other goodies:
    I do not know what to do with coconut oil and I never heard of sorghum syrup. But I got some.

    They mix the brown sugar there as well, so I got 5 lbs for $2.35. 


    I think I can/should make some cookies soon. Stay tuned...

    Suzy has been baking like she is cooking for an army. Her Toll House recipe, is the stuff of which dreams are made. I dare not approach her to offer any modification of her recipe, as I do not wish her efforts to cease.

    Biscuits, loafs, cookies and pies. Heaven.

    I give most of them away.  In fact, I've lost weight.  Yesterday I drilled a couple extra holes on the thin side of a belt I bought at the MN state fair about 2 years ago.

    My son made a batch of these last night, nola, following the guide you posted. His first ever. 

    They were the best frigging chocolate chip cookies I ever had. 

    What was interesting to me is that he is just starting to cook, and yet he nails everything the first time. Astounding really. 

    Problem is he still had a college schedule. So he makes this stuff at midnight or later. 

    Made a banana cream pie from scratch one night just ad the wife and I were going up to bed. Next up was a flan. 

    Funny kid.

    @PigBeanUs have him try this one.  There is a link in there that Cali posted that goes through their experiments that resulted in this recipe.  I've made 3 batches of these and they really can't be improved, IMO.  I add more chocolate salt and vanilla, but that is because I like strong bold flavors.

    I don't want to derail this wonderful thread, but how did you end up at the MN State Fair?

    My boss gave us money and said "have fun, I'll meet up there later".  Then she showed up, kept the drinks flowing for the group.  She's the consummate mom.

    Got a lot of great ideas going through this thread.  Made some killer cookies this year.  Anyone interested in a new rabbit hole should try making homemade vanilla extract.  Fun to make and great tasting.  Here is this year's batch.

    THIS is my fav cookie - my sweet tooth is Manageable  . . until THC is introduced then it’s ON - anyway that looks insane.
