And...the other one...

Here is the chewy version of the molasses cookie. Yep, its the big puffy one with the sugar on top...mmmm. I thought I gave this recipe out on my blog last year, but I didn't. So, making its debut is the Holiday Molasses Cookie...this cookie is sure to become a holiday tradition every year.

Holiday Molasses Cookies

3⁄4 C shortening

1 C brown sugar, packed

1 egg

1⁄4 C molasses

Mix above ingredients together and then add:

2 C + 2 T sifted and finely ground whole wheat flour

2 tsp baking soda

1/8 tsp salt

1⁄2 tsp ground cloves

11⁄4 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Roll into 1 in. balls and dip tops in sugar. Put sugar in a bowl for dipping the cookie dough balls. Dip top of each dough ball in sugar. Drip a few drops of water from your fingers on the top of each ball to help the sugar remain on the cookie. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Makes 3 dozen cookies.
