It's a Cookie Exchange!


I saw this yesterday and decided had to make some cookies today! And being as I was making cookies anyway, I thought I would take part!


We always made Christmas cookies growing up. There are three or four recipes that I love to pull out each year. These cookies are a bit like Gingersnaps.

Crackle-Top Molasses Cookies
Makes 45 cookies

2/3 cup veggie oil
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 to 2 1/4 cup flour

* Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
* In a large bowl, combine oil and 1 cup sugar. Add egg, beating well. Stir in molasses, 2 cups flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger.
* Form dough into balls and roll in 1/3 cup sugar. Place three inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
* Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and tops crack. Remove cookies and cool on racks. (Note: I found 10 minutes was enough!)


This afternoon the Irishman and I went to a Christmas concert with Shannon and her mom. We both got to save on postage and hand over the goodies we would otherwise have had to mail. It was great to get to see each other in real life!


This recipe makes more cookies than the Irishman and I could ever finish so I was happy to send some home with Shannon!

I can vouch for them being delicious! It was great fun seeing you guys. And getting all the goodies was great too. I love Rylee's books and bath toys. Can't wait to try them out.
