Dropping in after a long time away.... I've been playing and learning and being lazy too.

Sharing a yummy cookie recipe for the holiday.
Merry Christmas!


1/2 cup canola oil
1 1/4 c sugar (divided)
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, beat oil with 1 cup sugar. Whisk in egg and molasses. Add flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir until dough is moist. Using 1 teaspoon per cookie (I used a small cookie scoop), shape dough into a ball. Roll in remaining sugar. Bake on lightly greased baking sheets (I used air-bake sheets, un greased) at 375 degrees F. for 12-15 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
Yield: 3 Dozen
