Very easy recipe, great for the fall and winter seasons. My mom emailed the recipe under the title: Excellent Cookies (thanks, Mom). I didn't realize exactly what I was making until the end! They look and taste just like ginger snaps.



3/4 c. butter

1 c. packed brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 c. light molasses

2 1/4 - 2 1/2 c. flour

2 tsp. soda

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. ginger

1/2 tsp. ground cloves


Mix moist ingredients, followed by dry ingredients. Add additional flour if too sticky. Roll dough into walnut-size balls, then roll in additional brown sugar. Space balls on cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375. (Be careful about burning the bottom of the cookie -- I let mine cook for about 8 mins)

Actually, it's a closeup of a standard-sized loaf. *g* It is pretty tasty, if I do say so myself. It's ordinary white bread with a few tweaks - I substitute whole wheat flour for about a third of the total flour, and add an egg and a couple handfuls of coarse cornmeal to the dough. The cornmeal makes for a nice crunch when you toast the bread.
