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?
Molasses Crinkles p 143 Betty Crocker Cooky Book (1963)
- 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)
*If you don’t know who these badasses are, please go to the movies more. Please.
