I adapted this recipe here for these cookies. It’s doubled and makes a LOT.

These cookies are soft and stay soft for a while.  Taste yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups butter softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 5 teaspoons  ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • extra granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar, then add liquid ingredients and mix well.  Add all dry ingredients except additional sugar and mix.

Use a cookie scoop and drop each ball in granulated sugar.  Roll each dough ball to cover in sugar and place on cookie sheet.  Use a glass (dip in sugar if dough sticks) to flatten each ball.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Let cookies set up on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before moving to wire racks to cool.
