Kumquat Cookies

April 23, 2007

Anthony and I have been getting Kumquats in our CSA lately and sometimes it’s hard to find something to make with them. They are so cute, like minature oranges. Plus who doesn’t like saying Kumquat (especially since is seems like it should be a dirty word.) Last time I candied them. We didn’t make the cupcakes, just candied them and ate them. They were really good, and easy to make, but not the sort of thing I wanted to eat often.

This time we made them into cookies.

Kumquat Oatmeal Cookies (lots more recipes here!)

2/3 cups margarine
2/3 cups brown sugar
2 large eggs
1-1/2 cups oatmeal
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup chopped kumquats (pureed)

Beat margarine and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs to the mixture and mix well. Combine oatmeal, flour, baking soda and salt. Mixing well. Add chopped kumquats and chocolate chips. Drop by large teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes at 375 degrees or until golden brown. 2-1/2 dozen.

Instead of making them with the white chocolate chips we used regular milk chocolate and they are so good! It’s like having a chocolate orange cookie. From now on this will be the kumkuat recipe I use.

    Hey Jodie,

    And a very happy belated birthday to you! I’m still to post a package to you & Ant and I was hoping it would get there BEFORE your birthday… oops…

    Anyway, just wanted to comment on the cumquat thing… I didn’t realise, but there is an abundance of ’em in Corfu (just back from our os trip)… one of the most common souvenirs was cumquat grappa/liqueur… now if I’d known you liked cumquats…

    Happy Birthday again…
