  • . coating for rolling: 2 Tbsps. turbinado sugar

Directions

  1. . Preheat the oven to 350F. Prepare a large, parchment lined baking pan. Position the rack in the center of the oven.
  2. . In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and spices until blended. Set aside.
  3. . In a large bowl, on LOW-MED speed, beat the butter, oil, squash, sugar and molasses until combined and smooth.
  4. . Now, add the flour and spice mix to the batter in three portions. Keep scraping the bowl with a spatula. Beat on medium speed only until all traces of flour have disappeared. Do not over beat.
  5. . ASSEMBLY: Prepare a shallow pan and place the turbinado sugar for the coating.
  6. . Using a #30 (1-1/2inch) mini ice-cream scoop, form packed and flattened portions.
  7. . Lightly touch the flat portion of the dough with the sugar coating. Place them about 2 inches apart. Gently flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass. Note: This cookie dough spreads a little.
  8. . BAKE for 15 minutes until the cookie surfaces have crackled but still remain soft. Cool the cookies only for 2 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
  9. . Store them in an airtight cookie tin or freeze them into their parchment baking paper and into a freezer bag.
  10. . Happy baking from Claudia's kitchen...FOODESSA.com
