1/4 C Sugar
1/2 C Canola Oil
1/2 C Cold Coffee
1 Tbsp. Soda (dissolved in coffee)
1 C. Molasses
1/2 tsp. Ginger
2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
4 C Flour (I used 1/2 White & 1/2 WW)
Beat together the sugar, oil, coffee, dissolved soda and molasses until frothy. Stir in the rest.
Chill dough over-night. But if you just can't wait, chill at least an hour before baking.
Roll out dough to about 1/4 inch thickness on floured surface & cut with cookie cutters.
Bake in 350* oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool, frost, & enjoy these not-so-sugary cookies.
I prepared the above scene for my oldest daughter. "Do you want to make cut-out cookies?" She ran into the kitchen, and we put on her apron & chef's hat. I had divided the dough, and only rolled out half for her to immediately start pressing cutters. Then, she helped me roll out the remaining dough as the cookies were in cooking/cooling rotation.
We frosted a few, but most were eaten plain. Look at Jolie wishing some would hit the floor!
The Global Warming 'Globie Awards' have been counted, and the winners/losers are....
exactly how I voted!
Have a fantastic weekend.
