Rumpledoodle Recipe

This is the recipe from Pooh's Heffalump Movie.

1 cup rolled oats
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp molasses
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tbsp boiling water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare 3 cookie sheets.

Mix the oats, sugar, flour, coconut, raisins, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.

Combine butter, molasses and water and pour into the dry ingredients, stir until well-mixed.

Drop teaspoon-sized amounts of dough onto the cookie sheets and bake, one sheet at a time, for 12-15 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool for 2-3 minutes on the cookie sheet before removing, them completely cool on a wire rack.

I was very frustrated not being able to find it on Disney's website. Fortunately some kind bloggers have started posting it!

Additional Tips: Having made these now, we found adding a teaspoon of vanilla for flavor helpful. Also, chilling the dough for about 30 minutes before baking helped end that spreading effect. Remove the cookies when they are just browning (12 minutes), allowing to cool on the pan for chewy texture, bake the full 15 minutes for firmer texture.

My eldest son hates raisins, so we replaced them with chopped dried apricots and they were just as nice. We wanted to use cranberries but sadly could not find any.

My 3 year old loves the movie and we watch it consistently at least 2 to 3 times each week. We love the cookie recipe and are constantly passing it on to other families. I was so glad to find this site on 'google' search engine, as I really needed to follow a Method. Thank you.

These are great cookies and chocolate chips also work well as a raisin substitue.
