Libby brought these to MOPS. I knew they had added sugar (which I limit) and weren't vegan so I passed them up; but everyone raved about them. When I needed to make cookies for PWOC to deliver to the flight line I knew I'd try these. They are SOFT and chewy and YUMMY....and I put vegan directions below.
1C brown sugar
3/4 c shortening (get the sticks, so much easier!)
2 1/2c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375. Beat sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg together. Add other ingredients. Roll in ball, dip top of ball in granulated sugar. Bake for 10 min.
Veganize: Rapadura replaces sugar; coconut oil replaces shortening/butter; egg replacer or flaxseed/water replaces egg. Rapadura can have a "molasses like" flavor but that is just fine in these.
