    Roosie's Note:

    This healthy (well, healthier) cookie recipe won a prize in the 1990 Pillsbury Bake-Off. It was created by by Constance Dudley of Stanardsville, Virginia. I got the recipe from the 50th Anniversary Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook. Cook time includes refrigeration time and cook time for 2 batches of cookies. These can easily be made vegan by using a vegan egg-replacer like Ener-G. Sometimes sugar is not vegan so you could substitute raw sugar, if desired.

      This was way to dry to form into balls. Probably had to add another 1/4 cup of molasses. Sure couldn't flatten them before baking as they would still just fall apart. So cooked for 7 minutes, then flattened them with a spatula and baked another 2 minutes. The flavor is great but, I will find another recipe for next time.

      These cookies are very good and easy to make. I will make them again. They are very grainy and taste like oatmeal (a good thing in my opinion). I may adjust the spices next time and add some nutmeg or allspice.

      Great healthier cookies! Mild molasses flavor that's not overly spicy. Even the kids enjoyed these. I was actually searching to post this recipe and noticed that the original calls for quick-cooking oats, though I'm sure either would work well. To save time, I didn't chill the dough or flatten with a glass and the cookies turned out perfectly round with a lovely crackled top. Thanks, Roosie, for posting!
