A cookie recipe doesn’t typically require a top-secret clearance. But in Washington’s culinary universe, few secrets are as sought-after as the recipes behind the Salty Oats cookie empire. Terri Horn started baking and selling these treats here some two decades ago, beginning with chewy, salty oatmeal raisin cookies that are now among the region’s most iconic foods and among its greatest mysteries.
if you haven’t had a Kayak Cookies Salty Oats cookie at Teaism, you don’t know what you’re missing.
The ingredients used to bake up these hearty, chewy and crisp cookies are clean and simple: organic oats, wheat flour, organic raisins, butter, cane sugar, organic eggs, vanilla, kosher salt, baking powder, baking soda. The surface is sprinkled with a scatter of salt so that each bite is laced with just a whisper of saltiness to balance out the sweet.
As with her Original, Chocolate and Chunky Chocolate Pecan Salty Oats, these new flavors are mixed, scooped, baked and bagged by hand. And like the rest of her lineup, they deliver big flavor and a pleasing fusion of sweet and savory, the latter a result of her signature sprinkle of kosher salt on top of each cookie. We can only say, it’s been worth the wait.
These are curiously big cookies, big enough to give a hockey puck competition.
The salty-sweet combo is to die for. They’re a perfect treat anytime.
