This recipe is delicious and a great solution for those bakers who end up with hard cookies thanks to their uncanny ability to watch Netflix and forget entirely that a tray of dough is in the oven. I stand at the oven and drool.
This recipe is very versatile. Hate walnuts? Use another nut! Want chocolate? Add some chips to the dough! Need more cookie? Double the ingredients and use your giant crock pot for good instead of evil! Just remember that if your family is in the house, you will probably have to share this creation with them.
Slow Cooker Cookie
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups walnuts, chopped
Nonstick baking spray
Mixer & flat beater
Combine flour, baking soda, and salt into large bowl and set aside.
Mix together butter, sugar, and brown sugar in mixer until creamy.
Add eggs one at a time, mixing well. Add vanilla.
Slowly add flour mixture to mixing bowl, blending well with each addition.
Add chopped walnuts.
Lightly coat the slow cooker interior with nonstick spray. Using two long strips of parchment paper, form an X at the bottom of the cooker, making sure the ends drape over the outside. This is how you will lift the cookie out.
Place dough in slow cooker and pack down firmly until top is even. Cook on high for 2-3 hours or until cookie is only slightly squishy in the middle.
Superhero Tip: Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream, or a dollop of chocolate syrup to the top of your cookie when it’s time to eat!
Second Superhero Tip: Every slow cooker is different. The ‘baking’ time is roughly based on a 2 inch layer of dough in the pot. Also, condensation builds up in the lid so I wipe it once or twice during the cooking process.
