O Antiphons and Molasses Crinkles

Today's O Antiphon is O Clavis David. Here we have come to the year 1000 B.C.

Tomorrow's is the fifth, which is O Oriens. With this we see that the line of David is elevated so that the peoples may look on a rising star in the east

And here is one last cookie recipe before Christmas. We really like these cookies but for some reason, we only make them at Christmas time. Enjoy!

Molasses Crinkles

1/2 C butter (no substitutes)
1/4 C molasses
3/4 C sugar
1 egg beaten
2 C flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ground ginger
1 to 2 Tbl additional sugar

Melt butter and beat with molasses and sugar. Add egg and continue mixing. Sift together all dry ingredients, except the additional sugar. Add them to the wet mixture, stirring until well combined. Form balls of dough. Roll in additional sugar. Smash them down with a fork. Bake 12-15 minutes until firm to the touch. Cool on a wire rack.

God Bless!
