I am hosting this month’s Food ‘n Flix Club Challenge and chose “The Incredibles” as the movie this month. I am super excited to see the new movie “The Incredibles 2” when it comes out on June 15th. I created these Incredible Jack Jack Cookies based on the trailer for the movie where we see Bob luring Jack Jack to him using cookies. The cookies in the movie look like Chocolate Chip, and I have an amazing recipe for those, but I wanted something a little different for Jack Jack as he is very different.
We learn at the end of “The Incredibles” that Jack Jack, who the family believed had no special abilities, actually has many, and his abilities are amazing. He has powers that are attributed to many other super heroes, but normally our supers have one or two powers. Jack Jack has many more! He can shoot lasers from his eyes (like Cyclops), shape shift (like Mystique), teleport (like Nightcrawler), levitate, pass through solid objects like walls (aka Phasing, like Vision), and turn into a ball of flame (like Human Torch), heavy metal (like Colossus) or a monster. If you have not yet seen the short available on “The Incredibles” DVD called “Jack Jack Attack“, I highly recommend it.
According to the Pixar Wikia, his primary power is Molecular Self-Manipulation. This means he can “control how his physiology interacts with itself and the world around it.”
To recognize Jack Jack’s many powers, I wanted to include a lot of mix in’s into the cookies. I start using my chocolate chip cookies, but I’ve added toffee bit, caramel chips and butterscotch chips in addition to the chocolate chips.
Incredible Jack Jack Cookies Recipe
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¾ tsp baking powder
- 1 cup butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 cups old fashioned oats
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup caramel chips
- 3/4 cup toffee bits
- 1/4 cup butterscotch chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mats.
- Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder in a large bowl.
- In an electric stand mixer bowl, mix the butter and shortening until smooth, about 1 minute.
- Add the sugars and continue mixing, scraping the sides of the bowl as needed. Continue until the mix is fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla extract until incorporated.
- Add half of the flour and mix until incorporated. Add the remaining flour and mix well.
- Add the chocolate, oats, caramel chips, butterscotch chips and toffee bits and mix. You may need to do this by hand.
- Using a small scoop, spoon the dough onto the baking sheet. Cook for 11 minutes until golden brown.
This dough can be frozen. To bake, remove from freezer and bake directly, no need to thaw.
