Ginger Cookies

Posted by Hilary on July 23, 2008

Ginger cookies are fabuloso! They are perfect autumn cookies. They are also good cookies for summer, winter, and spring. I just made some for my cat’s friend, Nicole. This recipe is one I found online last year and modified to suit my taste.



2 3/4 to 3 cups flour

2 teaspoons powdered ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2-1 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup earth balance (or butter, if you’re in for that kind of thing)

1 cup brown sugar

1 egg or the equivalent amount of egg replacer

1 tablespoon orange juice, apple juice or water

1/4 cup molasses (this stuff is foul)

Crystalized ginger (as much as you want!)



1. Set oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.

3. In a separate, large bowl cream butter/earth balance together with sugar. Beat in egg/egg replacer, OJ, and molasses.

4. Gradually mix ingredients from step 2 into the wet mixture.

5. Cut up the crystalized ginger into whatever size pieces you please. Incorporate into batter.

5. Use heaping tablespoon to form big cookies. Roll cookie balls in a sugar and powdered ginger mixture. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten a bit.

6. Bake for 10-ish minutes. Let cool. Eat.
