Molasses Cookies

molasses cookiesI loved visiting my grandma’s house when I was a kid. She was a fantastic cook and Grandma. Birthdays were celebrated at her house, as well as family dinners and Thanksgiving. ¬†This is her molasses cookie recipe that we loved as kids, but with some changes to make it non-dairy.
Now, this cookie is a favorite of my family: great taste without being overly sweet and great for dunking in Almond Milk (or your favorite non-dairy beverage).

The Ingredients
3/4 cup oil
 1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 teaspoon ginger
In a mixing bowl, add oil, sugar, and molasses. Use a liquid measuring cup to measure your oil and then measure your molasses in the same cup: the oil will help the molasses come out without a sticky mess. Beat the oil, sugar and molasses.
