Soft Ginger Cookies

I absolutely love a delicious, soft ginger cookie. And these cookies are exactly that - delicious and soft!! Even my little cookie monster loved them!


Caught red handed!

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 Tbs. water
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp. ground ginger
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 1/4 cups flour
2 Tbs. sugar to roll cookies in

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, water and molasses. Add spices, baking soda and salt. Mix in flour. Shape dough into balls and roll in sugar. Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 min. Cool on cooling rack.

The other day while my mom was here she bought ginger snaps from the store (you know the little hard kind) and I thought, ooh I want to find a good homemade recipe. Why thank you Holly!

These are absolutely delicious! Thanks Holl for sharing them with us. Of course, I quickly ate all the ones you brought, because they were so yummy. Maybe next time Dad can have 1 or 2:)
