about 3 dozen 3″ cookies
Just like Grandma used to make – even better if you used freshly grated ginger. These cookies are quite sweet, however, and the amount of honey can be adjusted to suit individual tastes.
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/2 cup honey
Combine wet ingredients in medium bowl and mix well.
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/2 Tbl dry ginger or 3 Tbl freshly grated ginger
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup dry milk
- 1/4 cup wheat germ
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
In a separate large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and combine thoroughly — but do not over-mix. The resulting batter will be quite thick.
Drop by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
