|easy Shaker Spice Cookies|
one of my daughter's favorites
I don't know where I found this recipe but I do remember the first time I baked them.
We were living in the country and I needed to do some baking but did not have any butter. So, I looked for recipes that used oil as I had plenty of oil.
This is one of the recipes I used that day and they were so good,
they are still a family favorite.
I also like that they can be stirred up quickly, no need to use the mixer unless you just want to.
My daughter and I made a batch Sunday afternoon. We had them mixed up and the first batch on a cookie sheet waiting to bake just at the timer on the oven signaled that the over was preheated and ready to bake.
Shaker Spice Cookies
2/3 C Oil - I like canola but you could use any vegetable kind
1 C sugar
1/4 Cup molasses
Beat together, then add
and beat some more.
1/4 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t ginger
1/4 t cloves
2 t baking soda
2 C flour
Stir in the dry ingredients until well mixed
Now, drop the dough by spoonfuls into a small dish with a scant 1/4 Cup sugar in it.
Roll the dough balls around until lightly coated with sugar. Then put them on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-11 minutes.
this makes a nice, chewy cookie.
