Slower than molasses in January.
Otherwise entitled: Kansas Snowmen Cookies, or When they say molasses, use something sticky
These are supposed to be Oatmeal Drop Cookies. See how there is very little oatmeal?
I didn't have enough brown sugar to make stir-n-drop cookies, so I found this recipe instead. It came from a Betty Crocker Cooky Book (as did the s&d cookies).
It called for molasses, which I didn't have. But I did have enough brown sugar to do a molasses to brown sugar conversion - same flavor, less stickiness.
I'm guessing that's why my cookies came out looking like KS Snowmen - you know, little bit of snow, lots of dirt and grass?
So instead of oatmeal raisin cookies, we have cinnamon cookies with bits of oatmeal and raisins in them. I probably should've used maple syrup.
Oh well - they are still delicious! And I covered all the oatmeal and raisins that wouldn't stick to the dough with peanut butter and agave nectar, chilled, rolled into balls - and now I have more no-bake energy bites!
