MICHIGAN ROCK COOKIES



Michigan Rock Cookies image

Provided by Nina Joy

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 pound pitted dates
3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (8 ounces total)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs (room temperature)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons warm water
3 cups walnuts

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the dates in half (in thirds if they're large). To get the dates soft, place them in a bowl with warm water for about 30 minutes, draining in a colander to remove any excess water.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, add the butter and beat with an electric mixer until combined. Add white and brown sugars and beat until mixed. Then beat in one egg at a time. Lastly, add in the vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  • In a small bowl or cup, combine baking soda with warm water and add this into the batter. Add in dates on a low speed until they are just evenly distributed (do not overwork the batter).
  • Slowly combine dry ingredients into the batter, about one cup at a time. Using a wooden spoon, fold in the walnuts.
  • Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats. Form the cookies to be slightly larger than a golf ball and gently press them down, making sure the cookies are 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for about 18-20 minutes. If you are baking more than one tray at once, switch the baking sheets halfway through (top to bottom, bottom to top). After a few minutes out of the oven, transfer to cooling racks to cool completely.

MICHIGAN ROCKS



Michigan Rocks image

This is on my families "must bake for the holidays" cookie list. This recipe was given to my mother in the 1950's and we haven't changed a thing except we now use white wine instead of red. The red wine would make the cookies a not so nice looking color which was a turn off, but with the white, they come out perfect. It sounds complicated, but once you have your ingredients prepped, it's easy. I usually chopped the dates and walnuts (or you can buy them already chopped) before I start which helps to cut back the time. The type of white wine really doesn't matter much. I use a nice white Rhine or Sauterne cooking wine, but I think anything goes. You will get a lot of cookies. I usually get at least 6 plus dozen per batch.

Time 35m

Yield 6 dozen

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 lb butter
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 lb walnuts
1 lb dates
1 cup raisins
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 ounces white wine

Steps:

  • Set oven to 325degrees.
  • If using whole dates and walnuts, chopped them. They don't need to be chopped real small, about the same size as the raisins or even a little larger is good. Set aside.
  • Cream the sugar and butter. Add the eggs and mix well.
  • Stir the baking soda into the 4 oz. of wine until it dissolves.
  • Add the flour, the wine mixture and the cinnamon to the sugar.
  • At this point, I use a wooden spoon to continue.
  • Add all the walnuts, dates, raisins and vanilla and stir by hand until mixed well. Batter will be soft and loaded with the fruit and nuts.
  • Drop by tsp on to a cookie sheet and bake till edges are brown.

Michigan Rocks
Submitted by Catherine Neuschler, Bloomington, Ind
Here's my favorite family recipe for cookies we always make at Christmas. And no, the cookies don't taste anything like rocks.
Ingredients:
1 ½ cups unsalted butter
3 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
1 pound raisins, soaked in 1 cup hot water (until somewhat soft) and drained
1 teaspoon baking soda
5 ½ - 6 cups flour
Pinch salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons cloves
1 pound dates, chopped
1 pound walnuts, chopped

Steps:

  • Method: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With an electric mixer, cream butter. Gradually add brown sugar and cream well. Add eggs. Beat thoroughly. Soak raisins in hot water; when soft, drain and reserve water. Dissolve baking soda in hot raisin water. Sift dry ingredients together. Add batter alternately with raisins, dates and nuts. Drop onto cookie sheets. Bake for 15 minutes. (Cookies will not spread out very much.) Makes 8-10 dozen cookies.
