C is for Cookie, that's good enough for me....

And I suspect, even Cookie Monster would like these cookies! I started playing around with this idea after eating rice where I'd made a successful tahdig (crust) on the bottom.

2 1/2 cups fresh cooked rice (white, salted, with a little olive oil)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sweet rice flour
1/2 cup walnut meal
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil (approx, could be more)
capful vanilla
5 dashes cinnamon
2 dashes mace

Preheat oven to 350. In bowl of stand mixer, beat rice with paddle attachment. Add butter, brown sugar, white rice flour. Add egg yolk and walnut meal (basically finely chopped walnuts). Add raisins (as many as you like), and olive oil enough to make the mixture scoopable. Add baking powder, and spices last.

Prepare a sheet pan with either silpat or baking parchment. place about 2 tsp worth for each cookie, but spread it out a little, so its flat... bake the cookies until they are brown around the edges.... let cool, and eat.
