Yesterday I baked French bread and then today I went on a cookie baking spree! I made Gingersnaps, Scandinavian almond strips, and chocolate chip cookies. I am going to make some Russian Teacakes, and Biscotti tomorrow. It made quite alot of cookies so I think I have enough for some for some baggies for the neighbors.
It may be really hard, because I don't really like our neighbors.
Anyhow, here is my favorite recipe for Gingersnaps.
1 c. sugar 1 1/2 c. melted butter or oil
2 eggs 1/2 c. molasses
4 c. flour 4 t. baking soda
1 T Ginger 2 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt
Mix sugar and oil. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Stir in molasses, Mix dry ingredients and mix in.
Shape into small 3/4″ balls and roll in the sugar
Place 2″ apart and bake 10 minutes at 350
I love this recipe! It is so easy and tastes good! You can use blackstrap molasses if you want to in this recipe. You cannot always use it, as a friend of ours found out when he made Indian pudding with it. It was unedible! We all tried to be polite and eat it…but it was impossible!
