Ginger Cookies

Updated: Mar 23, 2021

During the holidays, many participate in a cookie swap. I thought I would share two different cookies that are sure to please.

2 1/2 cups All-purpose flour

2 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 teaspoon ground Ginger

1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground Cloves

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1 cup Brown Sugar, tightly packed

1/2 cup Shortening

1/2 cup Cane Syrup

1 Egg

Granulated or Powdered Sugar for topping, optional

Preheat oven to 375℉. In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt.

In a large bowl, cream together brown sugar and shortening. Beat in cane syrup and egg. Add dry ingredients, a little at a time, beating thoroughly between additions. The mixture will be very thick.

Form 1-inch balls and roll in granulated or powdered sugar, if desired. Place cookies 2 inches apart on an uncreased cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes. Serve warm.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!
