March 16th- The Canadian Wartime Recipe Challenge 2015

Sometimes there had to be treats, near as I can tell Chocolate was a big thing in the day, everyone appears to be allowed a certain limited amount of a Chocolate bar..

But today, we are going to do Cookies, .I am in bake mode on the farm today and I am doing a cross over but we are going to pick the recipes that use less sugar because its rationed remember! I am struggling because most of the sweet recipes are using a new syrup.. yup, they are so excited for white, light or golden CORN syrup.. ekkkkk

So today instead we are going to focus on Molasses instead.

Bran Cookies

One cup of bran, one cup of white flour, one cup of milk, 1 tsp of soda, 2 tbsp. of sugar and half a cup of molasses, one egg an one cup of raisins, drop from spoon and bake. Notes say can egg can be dropped and ground oatmeal can replace Bran.

Thick Molasses Cookies

One an half cup of Molasses, one and half cups of fat, one an half cups of boiling water, 2 tbsp. of soda, half a cup of sugar 2 tbsp. of ginger 1 tsp of salt Barley flour add till you can roll it out as a thick mat. Cut it 1-3rd inch thick and bake

Oatmeal Macroons

2 eggs, 2-3rd Molasses, 2 tbsp. fat, 2 and half cups of rolled oats 1 tsp of salt and 1tsp baking powder, Mix and drop very thin on greased pans, bake for 5 min and cool.

Molasses Cookies

1 cup Molasses, 3 and half cups of barley or oat flour, 2 tsp ginger or pumpkin pie spice, half a cup of fat, 1 tsp of soda and 1 tsp of salt. Warm the Molasses and the fat together, add the other ingredients, roll very thin and cut into squares and bake

    I have several wartime cookbooks and I’ve tried a lot of the recipes. I’ve NEVER gotten anything with molasses to be edible. It’s always too strong or just… yuck. Am I buying the wrong molasses or something? I can’t figure out why I can’t get it right! Loving your recipes! This is fascinating.
