When garlic is roasted it turns nutty sweet and loses its pungency. Roasting the garlic in a nut oil emphasizes that flavor. You’ll be surprised by the succulence and depth of these cookies—no one will guess the secret ingredient. They’re great on their own or fashioned into ice cream sandwiches.

Roasted Garlic Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

• 1 bulb of garlic
• 1/4 cup hazelnut oil
• 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
• 2 extra large eggs
• 2 teaspoons vanilla
• 1-1/2 cups unbleached flour
• 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
• Scant cup of rolled oats
• 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
• 3/4 teaspoon salt
• 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
• 1 cup coarsely chopped hazelnuts

1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Remove the outer papery skins of the garlic and break the bulb into cloves; leave the inner skins on the cloves. Place the garlic in a small, oven-proof dish and add the nut oil. Cover the dish with foil.



2. Bake the garlic until it’s very tender, checking after 30 minutes. It will take about 45 minutes to roast this many cloves. Test for doneness by squeezing a clove or two—it should be soft and golden. Remove from the oven and let the garlic cool a bit. When it’s cool enough to handle, squeeze the cloves into the oil and discard the skins.

3. In a food processor or a mixing bowl, combine butter, roasted garlic, and hazelnut oil, and process until well blended. Add the sugars and process until combined. Beat in eggs and add vanilla, and blend well until smooth and creamy.
