|Here they are laid out on baking racks to cool. The recipe that I will include makes this amount (a little less than 2 dozen depending on the size).|
Here is the recipe:
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
additional sugar for rolling the cookie balls in
In a large mixing bowl, mix the oil, sugar, and molasses together. Add the egg and mix well. I do not bother to pre-mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, cloves and ginger and mix well. Use a teaspoon or scant tablespoon as a scooping guide, roll small ball of cookie dough in your hands, then roll in a small bowl of white sugar. Place on cookie sheet (I use parchment paper as well) in ball form. They do not need pressing down. Bake at 375 for aprx. 7-9 minutes.
|Sugar cookies which got decorated later...|
These are peanut butter rice crispie squares. Enough corn syrup and peanut butter to choke a horse!
I also made the chocolate clusters made from chocolate chips, peanuts, butterscotch chips, and chowmein noodles.
Good thing not everyone is stressed over holiday baking!
