SOFT GINGER COOKIES



These simple cookies are  incredible, whipped up from pantry ingredients.  When you first bite into them, you feel the warmth from ginger  and  a hint of  sweetness from  honey with slightly chewy texture.

 For topping I had used granulated sugar but you can also sprinkle with silvered almond or white chocolate Awesome scent when they are baking. Especially fabulous with coffee or hot cocoa.

Most of ginger cookies recipes call for molasses but this was not available in my kitchen, therefore  had used  honey instead.

These cookies  do really  stay soft.  Soft Ginger Cookies are rolled in sugar before baking,  great  for the lunchbox  or for gatherings.

MY TIPS

Slightly flatten the cookies,  it will spread a little as you bake.

Place them 1 in apart on baking sheet, to give room for them to expand.


SOFT GINGER COOKIES
Yield     :  30 cookies



1  cup + 2 tablespoon   all purpose flour
1/4 cup + 2  tablespoon fine sugar
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoon softened  butter
1/8 teaspoon  salt
2 tablespoon  honey/molasses
1/2 teaspoon  baking soda
2  tablespoon ground ginger
1/2  tsp ground cinnamon
 1.5 teaspoon water
2 tablespoon  granulated sugar for rolling



METHOD
*   Cream butter and sugar adding salt, soda, ginger and cinnamon until pale. Mix in honey and water.

*   Now add the flour and forms into a soft dough..

*  Form dough into  1/2  in balls,   roll the  balls in granulated sugar.  Place  balls onto baking sheet 1 in apart.  Preheat oven @ 170 C.

*  Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Remove and let sit in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer onto rack to cool.
