|The Empty Cookie Jar|
So I whipped up some cookies and the ones I actually find easiest and quickest are Molasses.
Love them too.
3/4 c shortening - melt in sauce pan and then let cool
1 c sugar
1/4 c molasses
2 tsp baking soda
2 c flour
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
I always like to grease my cookie sheets with the packaging from butter or shortening. Not spray. The inside of the paper is full of greasy goodness. If you look in my dairy slot in the fridge its got old folded butter packages in it (like my Nan's). Try training your man to NOT throw those out. Not easy.
Then, roll'em in sugar. Yummy white sugar. Or whatever healthy alternative you prefer. *cough*
I actually added some brown sugar to it but they turned out looking like Timbits. Never again.
And for the kids, well, they don't get'em rolled in sugar. Cause I'm mean like that.

Because my oven sucks I have to revamp all temps and times so for me its; 350F for 6 min.
|No sugar for the toddlers.|
|Ahhh.... sweet sweet cookies.|
