Gluten Free Cookie of the Day: Molasses Crinkles
My Grandma Mickey’s cookbook describes it as a “thick, chewy cookie with a crackled sugar top”. And that is so true! It tastes like a soft gingersnap. Made with cinnamon, ginger, brown sugar and molasses, these would make a great gift in any Christmas cookie tray. Order a dozen packaged molasses crinkle for only $12!
C is for cookie and la la la la la. I’m not up on my Cookie Monster songs, but I am a wee bit buzzed from all the cookie dough. That’s right, I eat cookie dough. It’s the America way:)
So these are made with my Grandma Mickey’s secret family sugar cookie recipe. So I’m sorry that I can’t share that part, but I did include a video that I found helpful on how to make the correct consistency for Color Flow Icing. (click for video) Another helpful hint is if you need your icing to set up a little faster. Turn the light on in your oven and place your cookies on the top rack to allow the heat of the light to help firm up the icing.
Here are the results!
A few of the cross cookie designs.
Some fish cookies (we are fishers of men).
And hearts and crowns, symbolizing how girls/ladies are princesses in Christ.
Finally a few flowers, grown with love.
