Ginger Cookie Recipe
Our friend Brookie had the most inviting apartment in college, it was always the gathering place on a hot summers night, and a freezing winters eve.
She’d often whip up treats, and this ginger cookie was my absolute fave. Now fall just isn’t fall without a batch, a gossip fest and a cup of hot chocolate!
You Will Need:
(makes 7-8 dozen)
2 cups of brown sugar
1 1/2 cups of butter
1/2 cup of molasses
1/2 tsp of salt
4 1/2 cups of flour
4 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp ground cloves
2 tsp of ground ginger
2 tsp of ground cinnamon
How To Make:
Cream sugar and butter together. Then add eggs and molasses and mix well.
Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then add slowly to butter mix.
Chill in refrigerator for several hours.
Then roll into 1″ balls, roll in sugar and place on greased baking sheet.
Softly press with palm of hand to flatten gently.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 min.
Although this cookie is my fall fave, I think it’s also perfect to leave out for Santa, it smells and tastes so good he’ll take the whole plate and not just a nibble!
Thanks for sharing Brookie!
