In the Kitchen with the Kids - December 2011
Posted: Thursday, December 1, 2011
For so many of us, this time of year invokes memories or our childhoods, particularly memories from the kitchen, where we'd create holiday treats with family and friends. Try this nostalgic Molasses Cookie recipe that's not only fast – it's guaranteed to succeed. Little hands will love shaping the dough into balls and rolling them in sugar. (Big hands will appreciate the fact that the kitchen isn't covered in food coloring, frosting and sprinkles.) Best of all, if measured and rolled carefully, the cookies come out perfectly round and sparkly every time, requiring no additional decoration to make them great for sharing with neighbors or mailing in care packages. The sweet, sticky molasses keeps them moist and chewy for at least a week.
