Drop-In Cookies for Family Fun

Janet Groene’s

Eyedropper Cookies

    If you love to spend rainy days in the RV creating incredible aromas and tastes in the galley, this recipe is for you. If you have kids on board, there are even more reasons to have a busy-work recipe like this one up your sleeve. With clever wielding of an eye dropper you make each cookie into a different work of art.
     For one thing, this quirky recipe is flat-out fun to make by yourself or with family. For another, it’s incredibly versatile. You can make the dough at home, then bring it out of the RV refrigerator to make dozens of  cookies at a time, or just a few each day in the toaster oven.
    The spices in these cookies are just right for autumn camping.  Cookies can be shaped by hand but it’s easier if you have a medium size, self-releasing scoop. Don’t forget to bring a clean eye dropper, also called a medicine dropper.

3 sticks butter
2 cups packed brown sugar
2 eggs
½ cup molasses
4 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon each salt and  baking soda
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice
Coarse sugar such as Sugar in the Raw

    Cream butter with sugar and eggs, gradually adding molasses. Dump flour, baking soda, salt and spice into a clean bag and jostle to mix. Then beat into butter mixture. When it’s well mixed, chill dough.
    To proceed, make balls of dough the size of a large walnut and smaller than a golf ball. Roll in coarse sugar and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment or nonstick foil. Carefully put two drops (no more!) water on each cookie. Each will develop a different crinkle pattern. Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
