Meg’s Ginger Cookies

These are the best ginger cookies I have ever had.  My friend Meg was nice enough to share her recipe with me and I can not hold back sharing it with everyone else.  They are wonderful!

Meg’s Ginger Cookies

¾ c. Butter
2 c. Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
½ c. Molasses
2 TSP White Vinegar
3 ¾ c. Flour
1 ½ TSP Baking Soda
2-3 TSP Ground Ginger
½ TSP Cinnamon
¼ TSP Ground Cloves

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In a separate bowl sift together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

Cream together butter and sugar

Stir in eggs, molasses and vinegar

Add flour mixture to wet ingredients

Stir until well blended.

Make ¾” balls with dough and place about 2 inches apart on well greased cookie sheet.

Bake for about 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. (If you want them softer then 10 minutes seemed to be about perfect)

*I also tried these using Splenda Baking mix.  They still taste great but they will not spread as they bake.

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

I hope you love them as much as I do!
