avocado cookie!

i had an over ripe avocado and i wanted to do something crazy with it, so i went online to look for an avocado cookie recipe. i couldn't find one so, i made up my own with some help from friends! i was worried that it wouldn't taste like avocado at all but these turned out pretty well, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside.

1 over ripe avocado
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup raw sugar (or equivalent substitute)
1tsp vanilla
1/4 cup maple syrup (or less)
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
dash salt
3 pods cardamom seeds crushed

oven at 360F

so first i creamed the margarine with the sugar. and then being lazy, i just dumped the avocado in with the creamed sugar and mashed it while encorporating it into the mixture. then, i added the vanilla and maple syrup. after that, i sifted the dry ingredients into the wet, divided it all up into balls about an inch in diameter. i put them all orderly like little avocado buttons onto a baking sheet and pressed down with a fork, they were about a centimetre high. they were in the oven for about 15 minutes, their little bottoms were golden.

in hindsight i think a little lemon zest or chocolate chips would make it even better, but these cookies more than adequately fill my sweet-avocado and baked-good craving. (they're not very green, sadly)
