It's Tuesday again so time to share a treasure ,our hostess for this event is Melody of The house on the side of the Hill . As I was baking cookies yesterday I thought , hmm , this will be my treasure for this week Moose Hunters , one of my all time favorite cookies and I think the reason is they remind me of my childhood when sweet Mom made us these cookies , the recipe is not quite the same but basically the same taste . I have to tell you though , we called Mom's," Russian Rocks" by the second day as they would get quite hard , not sure why we called them Russian but we did and they were the best dunkers ever .
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup melted butter or shortening
1 cup molasses
1/2 cup milk with 2 teaspoons of baking soda added
1 teaspoon ginger
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour ( I used more as the dough was quite wet )
Pour melted butter over sugar and add molasses . Then add the milk with baking soda added , then your beaten egg and your sifted dry ingredients . Roll out thick and cut with your favorite cutter and bake at 375 F. until golden brown and Enjoy!
I hope your Tuesday is filled with Treasures and if you care to see what others are sharing be sure to visit with Melody and better still share a treasure as well. Thanks for stopping by, there is tea made and cookies to share so sit down and enjoy.
