Eve's Chowdown Ginger Cookies
Eve's Chowdown Ginger Cookies (2 Dozen)
3 bowls would be useful (all of my cookie recipes seem to require 3 bowls for some reason :)
In bowl 1 combine:
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour (280 grams in UK)
1/2 tsp of pepper
1/2 tsp of allspice
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of cinnamon
3 tsp of ground ginger
3/4 cup of margarine of butter softned (170 grams in UK)
1 cup of packed white or brown sugar or artifical sweetner (225 grams in UK)
In bowl 3 whip together:
3 table spoons of orange juice or water
1/4 cup of syrup or sugarfree syrup or molasses (4 table spoons in UK)
Now mix everything together and whip it like it bit ya!
Wrap mixture in cling film to refridgerate for at least half and hour, otherwise the mixture would be too sticky to work with.
Once cold, roll cookie dough into walnut size balls, then flatten with a spoon on non-greased sheet. (With this batch I've added a small spoon full of strawberry jam in the center of each)
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) in pre-heated oven
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool and marvel the really cool crackles on the cookies. Enjoy them warm, and with a nice tall, cold glass of milk. Mmmm. Yummy!
