Yesterday I made molasses cookies. And I was talking to my brother at the same time. He asked me if I was going to take any pictures of the cookies and post them on my blog. I said probably not. He asked why.
I said, "Because I have so many pictures just sitting around on my hard drive from last spring and this summer and I don't have time to get through all of them so why add more pictures to the pile?"
He said, "You should just post one a day and don't worry about making each post a massive epistle."
I said, "Yeah, you're right."
Here's to more posts but less length. Not every day, that's a bit much. Just more often. We'll see how it goes...
So, without further ado.... Here are some Molasses Cookies to kick off the season of snow and good cheer (unless you live in Loma Linda, in which the snow is missing. But we have plenty of good cheer! Barry and I already had a christmas present planning session. We can't wait!)
1. Whip butter and sugar until light. (2-3 minutes) Add vanilla and molasses. Whip until mixed.
2. Combine all other dry ingredients and mix well.
3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix well.
4. Roll small balls of dough in your hands and then flatten. Place on cookie sheet.
5. Sprinkle sugar on top.
