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.
