T Stands for smoothie
Today is T stands for and mine is smoothie.
It has been warm here, 70°F. Yes, I know that is not warm for some of you, but here it is quite warm. Especially with very little wind. So we finally have some sort of summer. There is nothing like an icy smoothie when it's hot.
This was made with smoothie ice cubes left over form my last smoothie. Simply put them in a blender with a bit of sparkling water, or what ever you like and blend away.
I have been wanting to share this cookie recipe for awhile now. Mr. M. says they are the best cookies I have ever made. Now that is saying something. LOL
I really like Molasses and these cookies fill the bill.
2 1/4 C APF, 1 1/2 t baking soda, 2 t ground ginger, 1/4 t nutmeg, 1/4 t ground cloves, 1/4 t salt. Mix all of this in a bowl and set aside.
In a mixing blow add 3/4 C butter soften to room temp. 1/2 C dark brown sugar, 1/4 C granulated sugar. Mix until creamy. Add 1/4 C dark molasses, 1 large egg at room temp. and 2 t vanilla extract. Mix until combined. Add the flour mixture a third at a time mixing well. Cover the bowl and put into the fridge for 1 hour. No more no less. If you forget about it, let the bowl set for 30 minutes. Place some granulated sugar onto a plate. Then spoon out 1 T of dough roll into a ball and then roll into the sugar. Space the cookies so they have room to spread out.
Prepare the cookie sheet with a light spray of cooking oil. Or you can use parchment paper.
Bake at 350°F 177°C for 11 to 12 minutes. Or until you see the edges set. If the cookies are not cracked on top bang the cookie sheet a few times to get them to crack. However, it doesn't matter. These are so good they will be eaten in a day.
I hope all of you have a great day and be sure to stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's who so generously host the T-Party.
