My husband is obsessed with ginger cookies. The kids would rather have something with chocolate of course. Gotta keep hubs happy though, right? So ginger cookies it is!
These were gorgeous cookies! I loved the sprinkling of sugar and how they cracked just perfect. They tasted delicious and were gone before we knew it! Even the kids ate them and loved them.
Ginger Cookie Recipe
Recipe from Eggs, Cream and Honey
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar (plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling)
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices in a small bowl.
On the medium speed of a mixer, or by hand, beat together the oil and sugar for 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and molasses and mix well. Now add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix to combine.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of the mix on to ungreased baking trays. Make sure to leave an inch or more between each drop. Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
Bake for 12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and then move on to a wire rack.
