Cookie of the Day

Currant Drops

"Anna's Plop Cookies"

Our daughter, Anna, helped me develop this recipe when she was eight years old. It was during a time when her brother, Zach, was having a lot of food-related problems and we were severely restricting our use of artificial flavors and colors and refined sugars and flours.
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup honey
1 egg
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp coriander
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup dried currants
Cream together shortening and honey. Add egg and beat. Add flour and spices. Stir in almonds and currants.

Drop from teaspoon 2” apart on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Cookies will be very soft when taken out; wait until cooled to remove from sheet.

Makes 40 cookies.
