This cookie did not taste good. It is not a drop cookie, it is pancake batter. It is a waste of beer. My dog didn't like them either.


I thought these cookies would be great for a company of men that love beer. I brought them in after tasting them as a joke, and I don't think anyone got the joke. Now of course they all think that I can't cook. I will show them of course, but just for the record these are terriable!!! Very bland, strange texture...etc. Of course my drunk roommate thought they were great, so maybe that is the trick I just don't know.


Fun to experiment with. I agree with the reviews that the all purpose flour makes the dough too thin. By happy accident, I'd substituted 1/2 cup of wheat flour, since I'd run out of all purpose -- what a difference. I used a microbrew and folded in dried cranberries for more flavor (per another suggestion posted). This is a savory cookie if the recipe is followed, not sweet. However, I've done a variation where I used the "sweeter" Guinness stout and folded in chocolate chips. I think using the basic recipe, with 1 1/2 cups all purpose and 1/2 cup wheat flour, along with a beer and a folded confection or dried fruit could make this fun (pick a beer, like Cherry wheat and fold in dried cherries, maybe, etc). Also, for beer drinkers, this cookie is not too sweet (depending on what you add) and is a change from chips, pretzels, etc. Doesn't look, like the basic all purpose flour, walnuts (and I'm guessing people pickd the macrobrew pilsner lagers as the beer) is all that great.
