Ginger Cookies
Friday, October 23, 2009 | Time: 3:22 PM

Its that time of year for ginger cookies. Really, you could eat these whenever but I always consider something baked with ginger nice when it starts to get cold out.
This is actually a recipe from Allrecipes.com, the famous Big Soft Ginger Cookies recipe. I really cant take credit for it but I adapted it just slightly by using freshly grated ginger instead of powdered ginger and adding raisins.
Keep in mind these aren't your traditional ginger-bread-man cookies. The dough is really sticky, more like a drop cookie. But these are yummy and take less time. You can still put candy faces on them if you want.

Soft Ginger Cookies
from allrecipes.com
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup margarine, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon water or orange juice
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the ginger, water/orange juice and molasses. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Stir in raisins. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
