This recipe is at least 3rd generation in my husband’s family and I completely understand why it’s lasted so long. Michigan Rocks are soft, chewy, mildly sweet cookies that are perfect for dessert or breakfast (dunked in coffee or tea – yum!). I don’t do a lot of baking from scratch, but these are a holiday staple in my house. Many thanks to Mom Mom Murphy for the recipe.
You may or may not know that I’m a bit of a picky eater. Trying new food is not my favorite thing because I tend to have a pretty strong reaction if I don’t like it, or taste something in there that is on my list.
However, when Mr. O and I were dating I was presented this cookie by his mother. Yeah, the mother of the man I really liked. I had no choice.
They were soooooooo good.
Once we got married I got my hands on the recipe and now I make multiple batches each year because we just gobble them up.
If you have a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, you can use the batter attachment to mix and it makes life a lot easier. And a Pampered Chef stoneware cookie sheet will help them cook perfectly evenly.
