In making cookies for Christmas I was trying to keep in mind what I had in my cabinets (instead of running out for more supplies). I found a recipe in the "More With Less" cookbook that looked interesting. I adapted it pretty heavily based on what I had. These are soft cookies that spread a ton while baking. They are a little crumbly but had a lovely soft, almost old fashioned molasses type taste. Sucanat is unrefined sugar. It has a lovely taste and more redeeming social value then refined sugar. If you don't have it, though, brown sugar would be a fine replacement.
