Walking Dead Carol's Zombie Apocalypse Cookies

apocalypse zombie cookies
We are big zombie fans in my house {which is funny since I am not a fan of horror and gore} and Walking Dead is our favorite show. A couple episodes ago the group arrived to the Alexandria safe zone and tough girl Carol has decided to put on a front and act all sweet and innocent. She wears sweaters sets, has no clue how to hold a gun, and bakes delicious cookies! But we know the really Carol {also affectionately known as "Scarol" to WD fans} and she is one kick butt lady. However, she does know how to bake up a mean batch of apocalypse cookies! So when AMC released the recipe for Carol's Cookies I knew I had to make them this week in honor of the Walking Dead finale. No eggs or butter in the apocalypse and chocolate is scarce so the recipe substitutes applesauce, shortening, and a small amount of chocolate {add more if you would like}. But the end result was a soft, fluffy cookie that was pretty dang good!
Don't mess with Scarol!
Check out the recipe below! I would love to hear your opinions about these cookies and anything Walking Dead related below!

Ingredients:

Makes a dozen cookies
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 large chocolate bar {I used Hershey's king size}
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 cup shortening, cubed
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/8 tsp salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine applesauce, shortening, brown sugar, and white sugar. Mix until blended.
  3. Add baking powder, baking soda, flour, salt, and vanilla. Mix until doughy and flour is fully absorbed.
  4. Let dough stand for five minutes.
  5. Melt chocolate (I used the double boiler method but you can also use the microwave).
  6. Add chocolate to dough and mix in.
  7. Add golf ball sized dollops of dough on a lined cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 11-13 minutes.
