Follow along as I express myself through art!! I never know from day to day what I will be doing in art or in my posts! I am on a journey to create, trying not to set limits or boundaries that will constrain the outcome of my expression. I have tried setting limits in the form of challenges to myself, only to find I rebel against it. Realizing that I created this box I find myself in, I am removing all restraints...

Rainy Days and Cookies

It seems that some rainy days are just cookie making days! The house is full of the scent of molasses and ginger! We are forecast to get 3-6 inches of rain today! Wow! We may float away! I would usually use a day like this for painting or creating something (in reality, probably reading a book), but I am in the 4th day home with a sick kiddo. She is recovering finally and ready for entertainment. That would be me!
Here is my recipe for when you are in the mood for some yummy Oatmeal Molasses Cookies.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
1/2 C shortening
1/2 C sugar
Cream together until fluffy.

2 eggs
1/2 unsulphured molasses

Mix together in a seperate bowl:
1 1/4 C all purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp

Add to molasses mixure and mix well.

Stir in:
1 1/2 C quick oats, uncooked
1 C raisins
1 C chopped nuts

Place in heaping teaspoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Cool for 2 minutes and move to a wire rack until cool.
