Hermit Cookies

While not technically a "cookie"... it is more of a bar... they are fabulously indulgent, and so nice with a cup of strong tea. I add extra ginger, and extra molasses, and cut the sugar by about 1/3 cup.

2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon each of cloves, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg
2 1/2 cups flour

Mix first six ingredients - add flour.
Spread in greased jelly roll pan ( 14"x10" or larger)
Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cut into squares (or pretty diamonds, like I do) while still warm.

Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar if desired.
