Teaching Cooking

I have taught basic cooking to my seven children and to classes of elementary children. When my youngest daughter wanted to learn, I found that taking the recipes and making them into a step-by-step format made it easier for her, so here is a blog to hopefully make cooking easier for the beginner.

Old-Fashioned Molasses Cookies

Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies

1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda

Combine molasses, butter, ginger and baking soda in a saucepan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally until butter is completely melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in:

1 1/4 cups flour.

Then add:

1 beaten egg

Stir until well blended.  Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.

On a well floured surface, roll our small amounts of cookie dough (about 2 teaspoons worth) to about 1/16 inch thickness.  Place on an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake about 5 minutes or until done.  Remove from baking sheet and cool on racks.  Frost with confectioner's sugar frosting.
