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
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!!!
