I thought I would give you two recipes to try.  One of them is a recipe for a molasses cookie that I got from a roommate at BYU a long time ago.  The other is a recipe for a yummy zucchini recipe from my sister.   First for the cookie recipe.

Molasses Crinkles

1 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

3/4 cup butter or butter flavored Crisco–I use the Crisco.

1 egg

2 1/4 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

1 tsp cloves

2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg together until creamy.  Mix in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and salt.  Shape dough into walnut sized balls.  Dip one side into granulated sugar and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet or parchment paper, sugar side up.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Do not over cook or they will be hard instead of chewy. Makes four dozen.  These are especially yummy warm with a glass of milk.


Chocolate Chip Zucchini Cake

1  3/4 cups sugar

1/2 cup margarine, butter or butter flavored Crisco

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup buttermilk or sour milk

2 1/4 cups flour

4 Tbsp cocoa

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups grated zucchini

1 cup chocolate chips

Cream the first four ingredients together and then blend in the remaining ingredients.  Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  This is such a deliciously moist and chocolaty cake that you won’t want to stop eating it.  Make it for a party.
