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.
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.
