How to Make Soft Ginger Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350. Sift together flour, ginger, soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl cream together oleo, 1 c sugar and egg until fluffy.
Stir in water and molasses.
Gradually stir in dry ingredients. Shape dough into walnut size balls – place balls onto ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slightly with bottom of drinking glass dipped in reserve sugar.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes – allow cookies to cool before storing in airtight container.
- The longer these last the better they taste. Makes 2 – 3 dozen (depending on size of the balls you make). I make these all the time – everyone loves them!!
