“A very good cookie that smells like vanilla as it's cooking.” - by BerniceV.
Original recipe yields 2 dozen cookies
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Whisk together the mesquite flour, all-purpose flour, and cinnamon; set aside.
- Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a bowl until smooth. Add the eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

I also made a batch with white chocolate chips (all I had on hand), coconut, and chopped walnuts that were very tasty, and another with just coconut and slivered almonds. Everything I made got eaten, but we definitely think they're better with a few add-ins of your choice!"
"I've never used mesquite flour, so didn't know what to expect. I'm definitely not a fan, but can't blame the recipe. I think I just don't like the taste of mesquite. The cookies had a definite bean..." See more aftertaste that was very odd. I brought these to work, and everyone (jokingly) accused me of bringing pot cookies. :) They weren't bad, but just left a really weird aftertaste. Most of the cookies got tossed. Interesting experiment, though!"
