Thoughts Before Baking:
So what could go better with a supernatural, Austen inspired novel, than some cookies in Regency style?
Not much! So this recipe comes from Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder.
When I saw it was Regency inspired I thought I might give it a go. Hopefully they won’t taste bad.
- 3/4 Cup of Melted Butter
- 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 1 Large Egg
- 4 Tablespoons of Molasses
- 2 Teaspoons of Baking Soda

- 2 1/4 Cups of Flour
- 1/2 Cup of White Sugar in a Small Bowl

- Place them on a greased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until brown.
Thoughts After Baking:
So I’m sure you have noticed my earlier writing that I hoped they would taste good. You see I don’t like molasses. I hate how it tastes and smells.
So how did I like it? I loved the cookies. They tasted a bit like gingerbread, but not quite; lighter and fluffier. I loved them and will most likely make them again in the future.
