At our family reunion my cousin Bessie brought these old fashion molasses cookies and they were great. EXCEPT it shot my sugar sky high, so here is a modified version of her cookie.
I have never said anything before but I do some things that are not the way everyone else does them, like, putting all the dry ingredients together and sifting them. Why, just because I do not and it works.
1/2 cup Crisco, butter flavored
3/4 cup of Splenda
1/4 cup of molasses
1 1/2 cup AP flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of half and half fat free
add 1/2 cup of walnuts
Use a number 40 ice cream scoop
I use parchment paper and after I scoop the cookies I put another piece of parchment on the top and put another cookie sheet on the top and flatten them out.
Cook at 350 for 10 in a convection oven
or Cook at 375 for 10 minutes in a regular oven
These cookies are light, tasty and do not raise my blood sugar level.
