Mole-ass-is cookies.

I really wanted to do this yesterday, but work got in the way. And I know I haven't done an On Nom Mon in a really long time.  So, I'm sorry for this being a little late! 

Anywho, my favorite cookie is the Molasses kind. I like weird things. Well, I suppose they are not that weird, but I like 'em strong. 

Kinda going by this recipe here . I added a few things. What you need:

  • 3/4 cup margarine, melted ( That's 12 tbsp.)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 bag chocolate chip

In a  bowl, mix together the melted margarine, 1 cup sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, spices; Then add chocolate chips.  Mix it all together. Cover, and chill for 1 hour.

When you bring it from being chilled, you do what I call 'dough bowling'. Make a mixture of sugar and salt. It makes a nice salty sweet thing going on. Roll dough into balls, or use a cookie scooper. Mom got me one after this because I was making a special batch of ones with chocolate chips and raisins. Then roll the dough around in the sugar/salt.

Grease pan, plop the balls onto the cookie sheet. 

Bake at 375*F for about 10 minutes. Or until they look done. They are a little bit of a crisper cookie. 

Dip 'em in coffee, that is what Melia does. Matter of fact, I made them because of her. I plan on  making some hot chocolate. They kinda remind me of ginger snaps.

I love molasses cookies, but I never thought to put chocolate chips in them - I guess that's why you are the Master Mind. Thanks for the recipe!
