Need I Say More?
I have a room that I am close to not getting into...
The Terrible Two plus Spike are hiding somewhere....
Accomplishments for the morning? I did manage to make real Molasses Cookies. Grandma's recipe.
Maybe the recipe will make up for the absence of minis. These are the best!
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 c. butter
2 eggs(I don't bother to beat them)
1 c. Molasses
4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. salt
Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and molasses and stir. Add flour and spices and mix all together well.
Roll into balls the size of walnuts. I use one of those little scoops that look like an ice cream scoop, only smaller. Keep a cup of water handy to dip it in, so that the dough won't stick. Coat balls with sugar by rolling them in a bowlful. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 375. Cookies will flatten as they bake. Trust me. Don't flatten them!
I hope this keeps you from running me out of town on a rail!
See you tomorrow.
