My daughter asked me for the recipe for these cookies.  She and I invented this recipe around the time of her 8th birthday.  They're a great holiday treat.


(Anna’s Plop Cookies)


            ½ cup shortening

            1 cup honey

            1 egg

            1 ½ cup whole wheat flour

            ½ tsp soda

            ½ tsp cinnamon

            1 tsp coriander

            ¼ tsp salt

            ¼ tsp ginger

            ½ cup slivered almonds

            1 cup dried currants

OVEN 375


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.  Cookies will be very soft when taken out; wait until cooled to remove from sheet.
