I think this is my all time favorite cookie.
I've been baking them since I was in high school!
Thick, chewy, spicy and wonderful.
I thought they would pair nicely with pecan and pumpkin
pies on the Thanksgiving Buffet this year!
Nice to already have them in the freezer!
I've posted the recipe before, but here it is again...
Chewy Ginger Cookies
1 1/2 c oil
2 c sugar
1/2 c molasses
1 t salt
1 t cloves
1 t ginger
2 t cinnamon
4 t baking soda
4 1/2 c flour
Have mixer running and add ingredients in the order given.
Shape into balls, roll in sugar and bake 350 for 8-12 minutes,
depending on the size. (I use an ice cream scoop and sprinkle sugar
on the tops instead of rolling in balls~ so much faster!)
They should be dark and crackly.
And yes, before you ask... The little plate was left for the auction trash.
In fact, there were two identical ones there just waiting for me to scoop up.
Lovely, aren't they?
