jcvdsplit

You have Chaos Born and Chaos Bound author Rebekah Turner to thank for today’s Badass Cookie.  She mentioned Jean-Claude Van Damme and the Volvo Truck Commercial where he does the splits, which 57 kinds of totally bitchin’ badass. Only… I have to admit I find JCVD’s TimeCop splits 58 kinds of totally bitchin’ badass. It could have something to do with those shorts he’s wearing.

So I got to thinkin’ what sort of holiday cookie would *Max Walker (Van Damme in TimeCop) Martin Riggs, Ellen Ripley, John McClane, Foxy Brown, Max Rockatansky, Sarah Conner, Jack Traven, Lisbeth Salander, and Tony Stark eat?

A HELL YEAH BRING ON THE SPICES cookie like this one. cookybook

Molasses Crinkles p 143 Betty Crocker Cooky Book (1963)

Oven 375F/190C

  • ¾ cup shortening                                2tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed)               ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg                                                    ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ cup molasses                                   1tsp cinnamon
  • 2 ¼ cups flour                                     1tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ cup extra sugar for dipping

Mix shortening, egg and molasses thoroughly.

Blend all dry ingredients; stir into shortening mixture. Chill

Roll dough into 1 ¼ inch balls. Dip tops in sugar and place, sugared-side up on greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle each with 1-2 drops cold water.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until set but not hard.

If you eat these, I guarantee you will be more badass. Or at least you will want another cookie.

Serve with a medium roast coffee or a sweet roast. (I like Starbucks Christmas Blend)
