When we were developing the drinks recipes in the April/May issue of Fine Cooking, I found myself bringing home a bottle of agave nectar. After making a couple of Garden Party Cocktails, I found myself firmly on board the agave nectar bandwagon, and wondering how else to use up this amber syrup.
It didn’t take much online searching to find several oatmeal cookie recipes. I took parts from several to develop my own recipe for Agave Oatmeal Cookies and was thrilled with how shiny they baked up. Delightfully soft in texture, they stayed fresh-tasting for the two days the batch lasted.
I’ve gone out and bought more agave, wanting to have it on hand as a pantry sweetener. Our test kitchen came up with several good ideas for putting your agave nectar to good use, but I’m looking for more. Anyone have any agave-enhanced recipes I should try?
