Kumquats Oatmeal Cookies

Adapted from the Kumquat Growers, Inc. Recipe site

Packed with wholesome food value, these are different and delicious!



2/3 cup butter

2/3 cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

1 and 1/2 cups REAL oatmeal (none of that weird already cooked stuff)

2/3 cup white chocolate chips

2 cups all purpose whole grain flour (I actually use half white whole grain purchased off the shelf from Trader Joe's and half whole wheat berries freshly milled in my kitchen., using the Vitamix. I've discovered 100% freshly milled can be a little heavy. This is a function of the type of wheat, nothing else. On my to-do list is to find a California organic wheat grower that can supply the different kinds of wheat berries for different cooking needs )

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp salt

2/3 cup pureed kumquats

(cut lengthwise, flick out seeds, add a little water to assist blending, drain off water)



Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs to the mixture and mix well. Combine everything else except kumquats and chocolate. Mix well. Add kumquats and chocolate. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes at 375. Makes 2 and a half dozen.

I made these last night, they are delicious! I just used regular flour, which came out fine. The citrus/white choc combo is awesome! I also have some of my kumquats macerating (look it up) with some vodka for tasty surprise in a few months... I am calling it "vodquat"!
