Chewy Molasses Cookie for One

This spicy little cookie is naughty and nice, sugar and spice. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s oh, so good! In fact, I’m pretty sure that if there were a dozen of these, I wouldn’t share them.

Makes 3 cookies

¼ cup all-purpose flour
Pinch baking soda
Pinch baking powder
Several shakes of cinnamon
Several shakes of nutmeg
A shake or two of ground ginger
Pinch of salt
1 TBLSP vegan butter
2 TBLSP granulated sugar
½ TBLSP canola oil
½ TBLSP molasses
1 TBLSP granulated sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  1. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  2. In another small bowl, combine the butter and sugar until it’s fluffy. Add the oil and molasses and stir until well incorporated.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine, but don’t over-blend.
  4. Put the rolling sugar in a small bowl. I use one meant for wasabi.
  5. Roll about 1/3 of the dough into a small ball and roll it in the sugar. Place it on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the rest of the dough.
  6. Bake for 10-13 minutes, until the edges begin to firm up.

Let them cool in the pan or they will crumble into a thousand sugary bits.
