Is it really Christmas without a gingerbread cookie? While these aren’t actually gingerbread – the molasses and ginger will hit the same spot and their soft chewiness will bring a little extra holiday comfort. These won’t last long in our house.
- 1 cup granulated sugar (+ ½ cup for rolling)
- ¾ cup Earth balance
- 2 eggs
- ¼ cup molasses
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
Yield: 2 dozen cookies
Preheat oven to 350o.
Cream Earth balance and sugar then add eggs. Mix in the molasses.
Whisk the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl and then gradually blend the dry ingredients into the wet.
Your dough will be sticky to the touch. Roll the dough into balls in your hands then roll the balls in white sugar. I find keeping my hands slightly wet helps the dough from sticking to my hands.
Bake on a lined cookie sheet for 15-20 mins.
