2 Tbsp. canola oil
1/3 cup dark molasses
1 cup packed brown sugar

2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. salt
extra sugar, for rolling

1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

2

In a large bowl, combine the oil, butter, molasses, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir until well blended and smooth.

3

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and salt; add to the molasses mixture and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough.

4

Roll dough into 1"–1 1/2" balls and roll the balls in sugar to coat. Place about 2" apart on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray.

Bake for 12–14 minutes, until just set around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool or serve warm. Store extras in an airtight container or freeze. Makes 20 cookies.
