The following recipe comes from Krista Manuel at Sangha Bean and is a variation on her to-die-for Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal-&-Seeds Cookies.
This recipe came from the Hudson’s Hope School cookbook Our Favourite Recipes-2003. The recipe had been submitted by a lovely lady from our church named Anita McWilliams. She shared fascinating stories of her many years in that northern community; often over tea and cookies. I think of her every time I make them.
1 1/2 c. butter
2 c. sugar
1 c. molasses
4 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. cloves
