One Smart Cookie

Janet Groene’s
Molasses Cut-Off Cookies
    Grandmother called them icebox cookies. RV cooks can make the dough any time, then bake 4 or 6 cookies at a time in the toaster oven. Molasses adds the old-fashioned flavor you loved as a kid.

½ cup molasses
1 stick butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg
2 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoons apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice
    In a roomy saucepan, melt butter with molasses and sugar. Stir and set aside to cool. Dump dry ingredients into a clean bag and jostle gently to mix. Stir the egg into the cooled molasses mixture, add dry ingredients and mix well. Form into a roll and wrap tightly. Refrigerate up to a week or freeze up to 2 months.
    To bake, set the oven to 375 degrees. Slice dough and bake on a greased baking sheet 10 to 15 minutes depending on thickness.
