Can I be in your club?

Sunday, November 26, 2006
I feel like a little kid... wanting to join the club that all the 'popular' kids are in. Well now I think I can -- Tie One On / November -- My apron picture and recipe are below. I have a bunch of these aprons that I think were my grandmother's but don't remember ever seeing her wear them. I adore them and the fun fabrics they're made of, but have never had a desire to make my own. So, I'm lucky that this month's theme didn't require any extra sewing & now I can be 'in the club'. More pictures to be seen at my flickr site.




Tie One On

This is a recipe that I make again & again because they're so addictive. Even people who "don't like molasses" like these cookies...
Chewy Molasses Cookies from 1999 internet someplace
Makes 3 dozen

1/2 c. butter or shortening
1 c. white sugar + extra for tops
1 egg or substitute
1/2 c. molasses
1/2 T. vinegar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. each ginger, ground cloves and salt
2 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda dissolved in 1 T. hot water

Heat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cream butter and 1 c. sugar. Add egg and molasses and then vinegar. Sift dry ingredients (except soda), and all alternately with soda and water mixture.
Use a small dough scoop to make Tablespoon sized balls & dip tops in extra sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. DO NOT OVERBAKE!!! They will puff up and tops will crack, then they will flatten as they cool.
