Cookies To Count On

Janet Groene's
Molasses Mollies
    RV cooks can make this huge batch of homemade dough any time, at home or on the go. Then bake cookies as needed in the oven or toaster oven. They are good plain or with frosting.  Make them in a dainty size to serve with tea, or make whoppers to turn into whoopie pies. Crumble cookies over chunky applesauce, nuke until warm  and you have a cobbler.

1 cup light molasses
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
5 cups flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

    In a large saucepan, heat molasses and butter, stirring in sugar until butter melts. Set aside.Dump in dry ingredients and work in well  to make a very stiff dough.
    Form dough into logs. wrap in plastic wrap and chill at least four hours for up to 8 days. 
    Slice dough into thin rounds and bake on parchment or nonstick foil  10-15 minutes at 375 degrees or until set and slightly browned on the edges. Cool completely. Makes about 3 pounds cookies. 

See Janet Groene's latest book for boondocking and emergencies.  Survival Food Handbook, is a guide to provisioning and cooking with shelf-stable foods.
