Oh yum! Instead of making a dry mix in a jar, I prepared the cookies and froze them prior to baking. That way, I can have fresh-baked cookies whenever I want, just need to remove from the freezer the amount I want, thaw 10 seconds in the microwave, and bake! The texture is just perfect and I love that the only added sugar (other than the molasses) is the one the cookies are rolled in. Modifications: 1 cup whole-wheat flour/1 cup all purpose; subbed all the spices for 2 tsp 5-spice; used margarine and Blackstrap molasses. Yield: 30 cookies


  1. combine ingredients in large mixing bowl.mix well.
  2. spoon mix into a large plastic zipping bag.decorated if you wish.please attach the following instructions.
  4. Place one cup of sugar in small bowl.set aside.
  5. cream 3/4 cup softened butter, one large egg and 1/4 cup molasses, add cookie mix, blending until smooth.
  6. shape dough into 1" balls.
  7. roll each in sugar.
  8. Arrange 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet.
  9. Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes.
  10. Cool on wire racks.
