“ ‘Oh, Anne, I know I’ve been kind of strict and harsh with you maybe—but you mustn’t think I didn’t love you as well as Matthew did, for all that.’ ”

—Marilla Cuthbert, CHAPTER XXXVII


Anne of Avonlea

◁ Davy and Dora’s MONKEY FACES

Prep time: 25 minutes Total time: 45 minutes Yield: 24 monkey faces


1/4 cup (1/2 stick, or 60 g) butter, plus more for greasing

1/2 cup (100 g) sugar

1 large egg, beaten

1/2 cup (170 g) molasses

1 teaspoon baking soda

11/2 cups (180 g) all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon salt

Raisins, for decorating

You Will Need

• 24-cup mini-muffin tin

• Electric mixer

1. Arrange the oven racks so that the pans will sit in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin tin with butter.

2. Add the butter and sugar to a large mixing bowl, and cream together with an electric mixer. Mix in the beaten egg.

3. In a small bowl, add the molasses, then mix in the baking soda with a rubber spatula. Add this mixture to the creamed sugar, butter, and egg.

4. In a different large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, cloves, and salt.

5. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Beat the mixture together well with an electric mixer.

6. Drop the mixture by the teaspoonful into the greased muffin tin.

7. Decorate each cookie with the raisins for the eyes and nose.

8. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Use oven mitts to remove the tin from the oven. Let the muffins cool in the tin for a few minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack so the bottoms don't turn soggy.
