I wanted to make my family’s famous ‘ginger softs’ for christmas but my daddy couldn’t find the recipe until last night, so i made them today instead! (these cookies are good any time of the year tho so its okie) :3 they are pretty much my favorite thing ever so i thought i would share with my lovelies!!

here is the recipe using the mix from the last post

3 c ginger cookie mix

1/3 c molasses (extra dark please! :3)

1 egg

bowl of sugar for rolling

preheat oven to 350 degrees. combine mix, molasses and egg in the mixer, then scoop dough balls into bowl of sugar and roll to coat. place on greased baking sheet (or lined with parchment paper) and bake for 10-12 minutes. (the cookies will not spread much so don’t be afraid to put them closer together)

this first post is how to make the 'ginger cookie mix’ used in making the cookies themselves

8 c flour

2 c sugar

¼ c baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp ginger

1 tbsp cinnamon

1 tsp cloves

2 c shortening

combine all the dry ingredients thoroughly, (i always go heavy on the spices) you can use a fork but i find clean hands work the best :) then using a pastry cutter or a fork cut in the shortening till it has the texture of cornmeal. store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place
