I know, I know. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything here. I’d love to make excuses for myself (cough morning sickness cough) but I won’t bore you with the details.
Instead I’ll just say I’m sorry and refrain from making empty promises to post more often. You’ll get recipes when you get them. Also, you’ll get updated photos on older posts when I feel like it, too. It’s a busy time of year, guys!
Speaking of the time of year… I’m starting my holiday baking this week and wanted to share a recipe for one of my favorite cookies: Molasses Cookies. They’re sweet and delicious and yum. Oh, and they’re pretty easy, too. I don’t mess around with complicated cookies too often.
3/4 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Molasses
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Ground Allspice
1 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
Cream together the shortening and brown sugar. Add the egg and molasses and mix well.
Fold in the flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Refrigerate for a few hours.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the granulated sugar. Place on a sprayed baking sheet.
Bake for 9-12 minutes, allow to cool on pan for about a minute, and then cool completely on a wire rack.
