For those of us (like me) with a weakness for anything with a ginger/molasses taste, here is the best recipe for Gingerbread Cookies from my Canadian friend Selena that I have ever tasted. This morning, I think I had 3 before 9 am.
2 cups of flour
2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
½ tsp cloves
1 cup brown sugar
2/4 cup butter or margarine (but who are we kidding, butter is better)
¼ cup molasses
fine granulated sugar
(roll into balls and roll in sugar before baking)
Just for fun- here is her recipe card she wrote out when she was 12 years old that she has kept more than 20 years.
The mixing directions are here.
Hope you enjoy!
