A Spicy Favour

9 comments

Today was one of those days I would like to forget! Everything was going wrong at work and my stress was at an all time high. Days like this I long for my former life as a professional student

After work I had my favourite I’m famished want to eat the fridge snack:

After a quick dinner of toasted veggie sandwiches and a 30 minute Ange & Eric condo clean up, I was off to the kitchen to make my BIL his birthday cookies.

I decided to make Big, Soft Ginger Cookies- the same recipe that I baked over 500 cookies for my wedding favours this past August!

Yes, I baked all of these myself a week before our wedding!

Luckily I had help wrapping over 130 wedding favours!

These cookies were raved about at the wedding…I still have family members and friends asking for the recipe!

And so I present to you…..the most delicious ginger cookies you will ever taste. It is so powerful it has converted former ‘non-ginger’ fans into ginger lovers (Eric….?).

1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

My rating: 4.75/5 stars

All recipes rating: 5/5 stars by 41 reviewers

These cookies are 1) Addictive, and 2) Better the next day, but still amazing right out of the oven. They stay soft for 1-2 weeks in tupperware and they also freeze fantastically.

Now go to your kitchen, fast, run

Woot! I finally got all the ingrediants to make these, but I have a couple of questions:

What do you mean by 1 egg replacer? Would one egg work?

Also, I want to make some variety of ginger cookies for my boyfriend’s dad. His dad isn’t much for really sweet cookies, are these all that sweet? What about your Gingerbread Boy cookies? Between the two recipes, which is better? What’s the difference between the two?

I hope you can help a gal out here! :D I look forward to making some variety of ginger cookie very very soon.

These are amazing! Thank you so much for posting this. I have never really enjoyed Ginger cookies but thought I’d give them a try for my kids. My whole family thinks they are great. In the words of my son “these cookies are awesome”. Could you use this recipe for gingerbread men?
