Hulk Cookies – Try for Halloween

I was trying to find a way to make a Halloween cookie and make it healthy. Plus, my son is really into super heroes right now. So I decided to try and incorporate spinach into a cookie and I figured that I should add the Incredible Hulk to make the cookies green.  That’s how “Hulk Cookies” came about.

I wouldn’t recommend telling your kids that the cookies have spinach in them.  From my experience they may not even try them if they really know what’s in them.  Anyways, this time around the Hulk Cookies were a success.  Both kids ate them not knowing that they really had a vegetable in them.  Sure they had sugar as well, but at least they got some extra vitamins mixed in with their treat. Try these out for something different this Halloween!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups flour (regular or gluten free)
  • 2 TBS cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Additional sugar for rolling

Instructions

  1. In a blender, purée the milk and spinach until no specks of green remain. Set aside. In a medium bowl mix the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, cream the butter, sugar, vanilla extract and spinach milk. Combine the wet and dry into a sticky dough.
  2. Roll into small balls and roll in sugar. Flatten down cookie balls on the pan a little with a fork.
  3. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Now enjoy!
