I went on a bit of a Cookie rampage last weekend and made just about every kind of cookie you can think of. Well, there may be a few more…
For the patriots game, my family got together to watch the game and enjoy some good eats and I decided to bring a cookie. These little delectables really hit the spot too. I love ginger cookies because after just 1 or 2 they seem to satisfy the sweet tooth and this recipe has been by far my favorite.
|2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour||2 Teaspoons Ground Ginger|
|1 Teaspoon Baking Soda||3/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon|
|1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves||1/4 Teaspoon Salt|
|3/4 Cup Softened Butter||1 Cup White Sugar|
|1 Tablespoon Water||1/4 Cup Molasses|
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and salt together in one bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, mix the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Mix in the egg, water and molasses. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients.
3. Form the dough into 1 inch dough balls and roll each one in white sugar to form a light coating. Place them on a cookie sheet covered in tin foil.
4. Bake the cookies for about 9 minutes and then allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. They are quite doughy when removed from the oven and they need a chance to cool and become more solid before moving them.
I LOVED these cookies. They really turned out great.
