“Play your cards right, maybe you don’t have to die. And I want my dish back clean when you’re done.”

The start of this blog + season 6 premier of The Walking Dead = awesome stuff.

In honor of one of my favorite shows I created a cookie recipe celebrating the best character to ever grace my television: Carol Peletier. The ingredients are what I imagine would still be kicking around after the apocalypse, featuring a homemade applesauce used in place of eggs. Instead of stirring in melted chocolate like Carol, I opted to chop mine into tiny little bits and fold them into the batter. They turned out delicious with serious caramel overtones, but were a little on the sweet side. Make sure to have some coffee or milk handy while you indulge in all the cookie and zombie deliciousness!


Carol’s Cookies

  • Crisco, 1/2 cup
  • Apple sauce (preferably homemade or just use no sugar added), 1/2 cup
  • Granulated sugar, 1/2 cup
  • Brown sugar, 1/2 cup
  • Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon
  • Instant vanilla pudding, small box
  • Unlbeached flour, 1 cup
  • Oats, 1 cup
  • Baking soda, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt, 1 teaspoon
  • Hershey Milk Chocolate bar, 1/4 – chopped finely/shaved
  1. Cream crisco, apple sauce, sugars and vanilla extract approximately 6 minutes. Add pudding and cream an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Combine flour, oats, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture in small additions until just combined, do not overmix. Fold in shaved chocolate.
  3. Allow these to rest in the fridge for 4-24 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 350. Scoop dough onto unlined, ungreased baking sheet (I used my 1/8 cup measuring spoon).
  5. Bake 6 minutes, then rotate pan and slam down a little to flatten cookies and bake another 6 minutes.
