You read that right. Spam Cookies…as in they have Spam in them.
At Christmas time I clipped this recipe out of the newspaper. I read and re-read the recipe. For real, Spam was in the cookies??? This seemed to weird. Way too weird…but you know me. If it’s weird, I’ll try it.
I put off trying them for a long time because I couldn’t taste anything. I’m still not 100% on the tasting, but I do get a hint of the taste, and Gannon, my grandson, was here and wanted cookies so I decided to give these a try.
Here’s how they looked out of the oven. To use the Spam in the cookies, I took an immersion blender and chopped it up. That worked really well.
I only had half of a bag of butterscotch chips so normally I think they would have more chips in them.
Here is the recipe. Besides the Spam, the recipe is pretty ordinary.
The recipe says to put the pan in the oven for 5 minutes and then rotate the pan and cook them for another 5 minutes. I did that. I was going to try to make them without rotating to see if it really did make a difference but then I forgot to do that.
So far Kalissa, Gannon, and I have tried them and we all like them. I had to laugh as Kalissa came in as I was baking them and there was still some dough in the bowl. She tasted the dough and said, “Wow, this tastes good.” Then I said I was trying a new recipe and showed it to her. She said “Blah!” I said I thought you liked Spam. She said she does only she just couldn’t imagine it in cookies. I said you just had the dough. She said, “Well the dough was good.”
She later tasted the cookies and liked them. She said it was just a weird thing that you don’t imagine Spam and cookies together. I totally agreed…that’s why I had to try the recipe.
I’m giving them two thumbs up. I’ll definitely make them again!!
