So it's the season for cookie baking.
And like all households,
we have our favorites.
I'll confess that these buckeyes are my all time favorite!
But each year I try to select the cookies that
are of different colors, tastes, and textures
and cookies that will create a pretty platter
for serving family and friends
and giving as gifts.
Today, I want to share just one unique recipe.
I got this from an old friend who always made
it sound like the recipe was some kind
of a family secret.
THE CAT'S OUT OF THE BAG!
This is a molasses ginger cookie,
shaped like a banana...
hence the name
The recipe is not really that much of a secret.
It's the pan they are baked in that is the biggest secret!
My tricky husband has a metal bender
so he made me my own cookie sheet
for creating these little jewels.
The cookies are dropped by tablespoons
and as they puff up,
they take on the shape of a banana.
Once they cookies are baked they are
rolled in powdered sugar.
And tasty too!
Here's the recipe....
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup molasses
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup shortening
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
4 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
Mix shortening and sugar, Blend wet ingredients. Add dry ingredients. Drop by teaspoons and bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Roll in 10x.
Have a great day!
