Dark Herb Cookies

A friend of our newsletter editor makes these to serve at intermission at coffeehouse concerts at their UU church — they are very spicy, not too sweet and simply delicious!

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup molasses
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp crushed coriander seed
3 tsp ginger
1 tsp cloves
2 tbsp anise
1/3 cup hot brewed Café Campesino coffee

In large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Beat in egg. Stir in molasses. In separate bowl, sift together remaining ingredients. Add alternately with coffee to creamed mixture. Drop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350′ for 8-10 minutes. Cool on rack. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

I’m making these for the first time today – and for historical purposes the original recipe is from a Better Homes & Garden cookie cookbook. Been in my family for years. 🙂
