Chewy Ginger Cookies


Checked off my Fun Fall To Do List!
Yum.   Dough should be stiff.

Transferware plate from the auction trash.
Perfect for these cookies, don't you think?

I post this recipe every fall!
It's my favorite!
Fresh photo, though. ha.

Chewy Ginger Cookies

1 c oil
2 c sugar
1/2 c molasses
2 eggs
1 t salt
1 t cloves
1 t ginger
2 t cinnamon
4 t baking soda
4 1/2  c flour

Have mixer running and add ingredients in the order given.
Shape into balls, roll in sugar and bake 350 for 8-12 minutes,
depending on the size. (I use an ice cream scoop and sprinkle sugar
on the tops instead of rolling in balls~ so much faster!)
They should be dark and crackly.

    1. Hey! Well, yes there is...but I'd bake a new batch for you, you know! :) So good to see you...I've thought of you often and hoped you were doing well. Sending a big virtual hug your way....

      isn't it rather late there? Up past your bedtime? lol....a cookie for a late night snack? :)

    2. Yep it was late - I've been writing prose and could have done with some of you 'biccies' to aid my concentration!! All done now though and I will now treat myself to an early night! Thanks for the hug, much better to have than a biccie - oh! you call them cookies!! yer know what I mean . . . . don't I take, wait for it . . . . . THE BISCUIT!!! LOL

      I've got myself a job, hopefully a permanent one, driving folks around in a minibus for our local Dial-a-Ride service. One of my passengers today was a wonderful lady aged 102. When I asked her to what she owed her longevity she replied that she chose her parents correctly but was disappointed that her elder sister lived only to 100!! ROFL

    3. That job sounds perfect for you! I'm glad you're getting out and about after your very trying year. And, of course, you haven't lost your sense of humor...always giving me a smile. :) sweet dreams...

    4. Still up and no early night!! LOL
      Yes, it would take much more than that to make me lose my sense of humour.

      Q. How will we recognise Adam when we get to Heaven?
      A. He has a rib missing and has no navel.

  17. Love the way they look. I'm a big crackle fan. The list is being checked off in good time.
    Sunny and a warm 80* again today after a little overnite rain. I'm waiting for the rain that will finally take the heat away for good.
    Happy Monday!

    1. You like crackly? How about snicker doodles? Or is that too much cinnamon? :) My sugar cookies have crackles, too. I guess I'm a fan like you! :)

  21. I have spent the evening reading back through old posts of yours, milady. I say, I'd love to have a couple of your hjomemade biccies as a late night snack! The plate is a beaut...and English, too. Most of that type of china is, I'll have you know. You would appreciate the cup I'm sipping from. It has a bird on it. I know how much you love your birds. Maybe even more than your precious feline friends. Thankyou for giving me a bright evening and good reading here on your lovely website. You are such an inspiration. And didn't I read some place about a new you with a different hair style and cosmetics? May I request a new photograph of to be posted soon? I know I would not be the only reader who would love to see what you have done to your lovely face. Cheers and thank you for warming this old heart of mine with your sunny disposition!

    1. Thanks, Mr. A for your very kind words. :) I have to ask you, though, if you wouldn't call me milady. It's very sweet of you to call me that, but that pet name is already being used by someone near and dear to me. :) You can call me, Betsy, though! ha.
      Would love to see your cup with the bird on it!

    2. My sincerest apologies! I hope I didn't offend you, Betsy. Thinking of you with admiration today.
