The title says ginger cookies. They remind me more of molasses. Did you know there is history behind molasses? Check it out at alilcountrysugar.blogspot.com

How to Make Did You Say Holiday?: Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.

    In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 c. sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them the cane sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto un-greased cookie sheets, and flatten slightly (I skipped this step).

    Bake for 10-13 minutes in oven (until tops begin to crack). Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
