Ginger Cookies


My awesome neighbor Lindsay came over last night for a girly night filled with PJ's, nail painting, take out,  and cookie baking!!! Fall always makes me crave these delicious cookies and man did these turn out yummy. This recipe is one of my favorite cookie recipes of all time and I know you will love them. They are a tad crispy on the outside and super soft on the inside or you can keep them sealed up tight and they will stay really soft. I normally eat half a batch when they first come out with a big glass of milk... Comfort food! Here is the recipe which is from The Canadian Living Cookbook which has been a source of many great recipes for my family:
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. cloves
1 tsp. cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two cookie sheets
2. Cream the shortening and sugar together. Beat in the egg and molasses
3. In a separate bowl combine flour, salt, baking soda and spices. Slowly mix into wet mixture.
4. Roll into "Timbit" sized balls and roll in a bowl of sugar until coated.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until they JUST start to crinkle. It is important that you do not over bake or these cookies will turn into ginger snaps. As soon as they get wrinkly- pull them out!
