Molasses Cookies

By Bethany

 On a whim this week, I made a batch of molasses cookies.  These aren't a kind we make very often, but in the absence of chocolate chips, we had to see what else we had in the cupboard to make cookies with.   




The original recipe came from a cookbook my grandma gave me.  Eet Smakelijk is a Dutch phrase that means to eat well and with taste.  Well, the cookies turned out very good, and I made a few tweaks, so I thought I should post them!  There was just one problem…there weren't any more to photograph!  That was easy to resolve by making another batch (yum yum!)

    Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups natural sugar ( I used Rapadura)
1 cup coconut oil
6 tablespoons Blackstrap Molasses
1 large egg
3 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
  Natural cane sugar

Preheat your oven to 350 F.  Cream together sugar, coconut oil, and molasses.  Beat in egg, then add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger,  cloves, and salt.


                                                 Form into 1" balls and roll in cane sugar



                     Place 2" apart on a greased cookie sheet, or one lined with parchment paper



Bake for ten minutes, or until large cracks appear


Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.
Eet Smakelijk!
