You walk into a room with a cozy chair beside a window, with sounds of gentle rain tap-tap-tapping on the glass. As you settle in, the aroma of ginger and winter warmth drift by. What is it? A tray of mouthwateringly soft ginger cookies baking in the oven! Follow this simple recipe to create your own cozy culinary moment.
Yield: 28 cookies
- ¾ cup (1.5 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature
- ¼ cup dark molasses
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 packets Prince of Peace Ginger Honey Crystals
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- Extra granulated sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, beat the butter until smooth.
Add the granulated and brown sugar to the butter. Cream the ingredients for 3 minutes, or until it’s a fluffy texture.
Beat the egg and molasses into the mixture.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, Prince of Peace ginger honey crystals, cinnamon, cloves, baking soda, and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients in the second bowl to the contents of the first bowl. Mix well.
Line the baking sheet with foil. Do not add oil or butter to grease the sheet.
Use a tablespoon-sized ice cream scoop to portion out the dough. If you don’t have one, scoop a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball to place onto the baking sheet.
Place the balls two inches apart on the baking sheet to allow room for expansion in the oven.
Sprinkle the tops of the dough balls with the extra granulated sugar for a sweet touch.
Bake the cookies about 10-12 minutes until they are nice and puffy, with a light brown color.
Cool the cookies on a wire rack, and enjoy!
