March ’12: Ginger Sparkles

I burnt half a batch of cookies😯 for the first time in my life……..

Hate my oven settings……😡

This is a good recipe.

Adapted from Rachel Cooks

Ingredients:

All-purpose flour……………………………..2 cups
Ground ginger………………………………….1 Tbsp
Baking powder………………………………….2 tsp
Ground cinnamon…………………………….1 tsp
Salt…………………………………………………1/2 tsp
Butter……………………………………………..3/4 cups
White granulated sugar………………………1 cup
Large egg………………………………………….1
Molasses…………………………………………..1/4 cup

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Mix dry ingredients.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream shortening and sugar together. Beat in eggs and molasses.
  3. Sift in dry ingredients.
  4. Form into small balls. (My mom’s notes say “marble-sized,” but make sure you’re thinking of the big marbles, unless you want bite-sized ginger sparkles. Which would be fun too!
  5. Roll balls in sugar and place ~2″ apart on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
