Hello lovely Let It Be Raw readers! I'm Cas and I'll be filling in today while Kiley is away on vacation. This is a recipe for Ginger Molasses cookes and let me tell you, they are amazing! They are the perfect balance of sweet and spicy without being too much and are perfect with a cup of tea or a little (or big!) scoop of vanilla ice cream.
1 cup Sugar
3/4 cups Crisco (vegetable Shortening)
1/4 cup Molasses
1 whole Egg
2 cups Flour
2-1/2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cardamom
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg together until well combined. Dump in dry ingredients, stirring dry ingredients together lightly. Mix together until dough is combined.
In your hands roll dough into walnut-sized balls, then generously coat each ball with sugar. Place balls on a baking sheet and bake for 9 to 11 minutes, allowing to bake for about a minute after cookies begin to crack. (source)
These cookies are perfect for fall and winter and are super easy to make. Be sure to stop by my blog and let me know if you make them (and what you think!)
