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:
Peeled English Cukes drizzled with balsamic vinagrette…and a side of Oh She Glows, See Bride Run, Kath Eats, and Eat Live Run…
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….?).
3/4 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 cup natural cane sugar sugar
1 egg replacer
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Only the best for my guests!
1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and molasses.
2. Combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
3. Roll into 1-1/2-in. balls, then roll in sugar. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until puffy and lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
And try not to eat 6 of them like I did!

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!
I am off to do some resistance exercises now.
So happy tomorrow is Friday….Nighty night everyone! :)

Oh how I love this blow… The more Ange bakes the better! =) yum
Thats suppose to say blog not blow… I’m really not a crack addict. I swear!
those look SOOOOO YUMMY!!!! : )
They ARE! hehehe :D
I’m SOOO making these this week! YUM!
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.
I was just saying that I need to find an amazing ginger cookie recipe – this looks amazing!
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?
I love ginger cookies and this is very similar to my recipe so I will definitely try them out. A tip to make them even more addictive try adding 1/8 tsp cardamom. It makes ginger cookies out of this world amazing!
