There really is no end to what I can do with this Amish starter.
These were awesome! They were crunchy on the outside and super cakey on the inside. Perfect texture.
Now, I have to warn you. I am not a good baker. Not. At. All. Did you see the shape of those cookies? Not a round one in sight!
I think the recipe I looked at called for 3 cups of flour, I used more like 2 1/2, it seemed thick enough. I know, you're supposed to measure well when baking. I have a problem with measuring.
I also got my molasses and vanilla mixed up. Once again, I decided to eye ball it and just pour some molasses in the bowl. Well, apparently I had the vanilla in hand, which is much thinner than molasses, and poured way too aggressively and ended up with probably about 1/4 cup of vanilla. At least. Whoops! I tasted the batter and they tasted quite alcohol-y. Once they cooked in the oven, they were fine.
My husband ate one and said they were good. But they needed more vanilla. No joke.
