Whatcha Got Cookin' {Oatmeal Molasses Cookies}

Yesterday I mentioned I got a new toy...
Boy it's a good one!
**Cue the heavenly choir**
My awesome hubby bought this for me today (hooray for tax returns!)
I am not the only one that is in love with this little beauty.
So to show him how grateful we are,
We whipped some of these up
These things are like heaven on a plate!
I should send some up to that heavenly choir. Ha!
Sorry you can't sneak one off the plate like this little one is.
How about I just give you the recipe and you can whip your own batch up!

Oatmeal Molasses Cookies
  • 1& 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Stir together in mixing bowl

  • 1/2 c. butter flavored shortening (you can use regular, but it just isn't as good!)
  • 1/4 c. molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
Add and mix until smooth.

Drop from teaspoon onto cookie sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Makes 3 dozen.

These cookies are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.  They are so good served warm with a nice cold glass of milk.

These cookies get the girls' stamp of approval
"These make oatmeal good!"

Thanks Honey!
The Kitchen Aide cut the prep time in half!
