I have to confess, folks, this post is for participation purpose only. I have no idea of what is made on CNY, but would be very happy if this finds a place in the new year bakes. This is a regular cookie that we make, but with a small twist. Molasses. Add a generous table spoon of molasses to get an earthy flavour that is very appetising for me. This makes a very small batch and was gifted to a little girl who enjoyed it very much. She gave me a double thumbs up.
Flour 200 gms
Butter 175 gms
Icing sugar 175 gms
Molasses 1 Tablespoon
Salt 1/2 tsp
Baking soda 1/2 tsp
Mix everything together.No creaming of ingredients is required.
Scoop into cookies in a baking sheet and bake for 20 mts at 170.
They will be soft when hot but will eventually harden as it cools.
