Food from the Farm: Ginger Cookies

Bookmark and Share

These are the cookies I make most often for my family, and their spice makes them a nice holiday cookie too. They come together in just a few minutes and the whole wheat flour makes them more nutritious than some other treats. I think you'll like them. Thanks to Marilyn Yank for the recipe.

Ginger Cookies

In a large bowl, stir together 1/2 c. melted butter with 1/4 c. blackstrap molasses and 1 c. sugar. Beat well.

Add 1 beaten egg and beat again.

Mix together in a separate bowl:

  • 1 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 c. white flour
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1 t. allspice
  • 1 t. ginger.
Add to wet ingredients and stir.

Roll into 1 1/2" balls and then roll balls in sugar. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes until firm to the touch.
