Wondering what I've been up to this morning? Well....I made
Mix well: 2 c. brown sugar 2 eggs 1/2 c. molasses 1/4 c. softened butter 1/2 c. oil
Add and beat with heavy mixer: 4 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. cinnamon 2 tsp. ground ginger 1/2 tsp. salt 4 1/2 c. flour
Shape dough into walnut-size balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Place on greased cookie sheets.
Bake about 7-8 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes about 60 medium-sized cookies. A great gingerbread-tasting cookie without having to roll them out!
The picture above is what they look like just baked the way you rolled them.
Above, we tried flattening some with the bottom of a measuring cup to see what they would look like, these are already baked.
Can you guess what these two are waiting for? Hmmmm.....I wonder!?
Don't worry, Chips made out like a bandit! One of the cookies rolled off the sheet when we picked up the tray to put it in the oven, Chips was happy to clean up the mess! :)
