Mom Bakes Crazy Cookies

LAKESIDE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The world of cookies has so much more to offer than just chocolate chip.

Just ask Fanchon Giordano, author of the new cookie cookbook Fanchon’s Favorite Cookies (BookSurge).

Instead of baking traditional cookies, Giordano spices up the oven with some twists.

Her chocolate chip cookies include orange zest, while her oatmeal ones are made with pumpkin.

Needless to say, she makes cookies with a kick, including “sour cream coconut drops,” which sound funky, but taste delicious.

She’s gone through much trial and error finding creative cookie combos and uses her kids and employees at a nearby Home Depot as testers.

So far, they’ve approved her tropical blend of coconut, ginger, and lime cookies, but rejected adding molasses to her sour cream ones.

She’s also working on unique pie recipes – and a way to prevent her family from gaining too much weight during research.
