A Yummy Treat.

My Grandma used to make these cookies. On Thanksgiving day, she would've turned 95 years old. Thought I'd share the recipe with you...

(And to be clear, they are not gingersnap cookies. These are soft, moist, melt in your mouth molasses cookies. Gingersnaps are harder. She would've liked for me to pass that on.)

Grandma's Molasses Cookies

2/3 cup oil 2 tsp. baking soda

1 C. sugar 1/2½ tsp. salt

1 egg 1 tsp. cinnamon

4 Tbsp. Molasses 1 tsp. Ginger

2 1/2½ C. flour 1/4 C. sugar (for dipping)

Mix oil & sugar. Add egg and beat well. Stir in molasses. Sift dry ingredients and add to mixture. Roll into small balls and roll in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-12 min.

Happy Tuesday to you!

I can testify. These may quite possibly be the best cookie....ever!

Oh, those look awesome, Trish. Just looking at the ingredients, I'm thinking they might be similar to my grandma's cookies. Yours have ginger, which will be an awesome addition! I'm definitely going to give these a whirl!
