Acorn Molasses Cookies

These cookies are heavenly, although the spices and molasses tend to dominate the flavor of the acorns, so a person wouldn’t know they had acorns in them unless you told them. A good way to sneak some into a skeptic!

¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup butter
1 lg. egg
¾ cup molasses
1 1/4 cups acorn flour
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 ½ tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
½ tsp allspice

1. Cream the brown sugar and butter together.
2. Add egg and molasses, and mix thoroughly.
3. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, acorn flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix thoroughly.  Batter should be soft rather than stiff, but not runny.
5. Drop by rounded spoonfuls on to a cookie sheet.  Flatten then with your palm and sprinkle with sugar crystals.
6. Bake at 325 for 8-10 minutes.  Be sure not to over-bake, as the bottoms burn easily.

To make these cookies extra special good, cream together 1 package of softened cream cheese and 3 Tablespoons of maple syrup.  Frost the bottom side of a cookie and stick another cookie on, creating a cookie sandwich.  Scrumpdillyiscious!!!!
