‘Tis the season to . . . gain weight, break out, have nothing to wear. Poor baby, you need a cookie.
Meet Ginger Krinkles!
Nine little ingredients, five minutes to assemble, 10-15 minutes to bake. Voila!
(*’Tis a cookie-exchange award-winning recipe.)
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Granulated Sugar (—additional 1/2 cup sugar for rolling)
4 Tablespoons Molasses
2 Cups Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ginger
Mix oil and sugar, add egg and beat. Stir in molasses. Sift dry ingredients together and add to mixture.
Place spoonful of dough into separate bowl of sugar and roll into uniformly sized balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
On the first day of holiday programming on the Hallmark Channel, my true love gave to me, my very own remote to the TV.
Laying his finger aside of his nose, he goes, “I’m off to watch football and drink beers,” as I settle down for my long winter’s nap, sure to be filled with good cheers.
Each Hallmark movie fills me with glee, and will contain some version of reindeers, funny ears, a poor woman’s fears, switching gears, something bad she hears, could be threatening jeers, some jerk leers, a quick check in mirrors, as the big day nears, trickery and/or betrayal from peers, (by now my ass has doubled into rears), into the skids the plot steers, Oh, yes! There will be tears!
Le sigh . . . as happily-ever-after veers right on into “Happy New Year’s!”
If you haven’t DVRd a Hallmark Channel Holiday movie, we have nothing further to discuss.
