    Default Article: Ginger Cookies

    One of my favorite cookie flavors - ginger. When we think of ginger cookies we usually think of the traditional dark gingersnaps. Here's some other great ginger cookies you can try:

    ~~ Soft Ginger Cookies ~~

    1/4 cup shortening
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 egg
    1/2 cup molasses
    2 1/4 cup flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp ginger
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1 tsp cloves
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 cup hot water

    Blend shortening, brown sugar and egg. Beat. Stir in molasses.
    Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, &
    cinnamon in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to shortening
    mixture alternately with hot water. Chill thoroughly. Drop by
    teaspoonful on greased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 - 9 minutes at
    400F.



    ~~ Gingerbread Cookies ~~

    Not as dark or hard as the traditional gingersnaps

    1 1/4 cups margarine
    2 eggs
    2 cups sugar
    4 cups flour
    2 tsp cinnamon
    2 tsp ginger
    2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp cloves
    1/2 cups molasses

    Cream margarine, eggs, molasses and sugar. Sift dry ingredients
    in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to liquid ingredients. Roll
    into balls and dip in sugar or roll and cut out desired shapes with
    cookie cutters. Bake 10 minutes for round balls and 8 minutes for
    rolled cookies at 350F. Let stand before taking out of pan. Cookies will be soft but will harden as they cool.


    ~~ Ginger Crinkles ~~

    1 cup butter or hard margarine, softened
    1½ cups sugar
    1 large egg
    2 tbsp. dark corn syrup
    ½ cup mild molasses
    3 cups flour
    2 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp ground ginger
    ¼ tsp ground cloves
    ½ tsp salt
    ¼ cup granulated sugar, for coating

    Preheat the oven to 375 F. Put the first 5 ingredients into the
    bowl.
    Beat with blender until smooth. Add the next 6 ingredients. Stir
    with a spoon until moistened. Roll into 1½" balls. Roll the balls
    in sugar. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 12 - 14 minutes.
    Makes 3 ½ dozen.

    I love the recipe for the cutouts that's not as dark as the usual ones.

    Her website is really cool too--I could spend a ton of money in there
