Because it's Monday.
Because it's Fall.
Because I love cookie dough.
Because I am making PW's onion strings & chicken strips for supper and I needed to add more 'ooomph' to my meal.
I made these.
some call them gingersnaps,some-molassas cookies, dusty millers, brown cookies, burnt cookies, yucky cookies... weeelll. maybe not those last three. but y'know you always could call them what ever you want!!
so because it's Monday.
Because its-ha. you thought I was gonna say all that again didn't you!! nope. gonna say this.
I now present you with these cookies.
THEE BEST WHATEVER YOU WANNA CALL THEM COOKIES...
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 cups icing sugar (otherwise known in USA as powdered sugar)
1/2 cup molasses
2tsp. baking soda
4 cups flour
1 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix and mash it all together. and here is the controversely part. you can either use a cookie scoop and plop the balls of brown on to your pan or you can meticulously form 1 inch round balls and set them in a straight row on your freshly washed pan. (you'll never guess which one is my way) you can roll the little balls in icing sugar before you place them on pan, but it is not a must. some would probably say it is, but I wouldn't know. Bake these babies for 8 min. (NO MORE.) at 350 degrees.
DO NOT OVER BAKE.
If when you eat these you are not solely and wholly and rolly and polly convinced that they are the best you can just put your favorite Molassas cookie recipe right here in the comments.
now go. go bake them. they are sugah free babee . not. sorry. they really are not. but I still eat them. always. even the dough.
