These came out incredibly. The ingredients:
- Flour, all-purpose, 2 cups
- Baking soda, 2 teaspoons
- Ground ginger, 1 teaspoon
- Ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon
- Cinnamon sugar, 1/3 cup
- Sugar, 1 cup
- Salt, 1/2 teaspoon
- Dark molasses, 1/4 cup
- Butter, 3/4 cup
- Egg, 1
In case you’re wondering, cinnamon sugar is awesome, and you can make it yourself, as I did.
First, pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, sift a few of the ingredients together into a mixing bowl: the flour, ginger, salt, and cinnamon. Then sift again into another bowl, to ensure an even mixture, and because you deserve the sifting-punishment.
Next, put the butter in a bowl and beat until creamy.
At that point, gradually beat in the white sugar. Then the egg, and dark molasses. And then, the crème de la crème: the opposite of cream, the flour mixture. Sift in a third of it at first, blend thoroughly, then sift in the rest.
Mix together until a doughy softness forms. Pinch off small amounts and roll into 1-inch diameter balls; then roll those balls in the cinnamon sugar.
Place these on a baking sheet (ungreased) and bake for about 10 minutes.
Then cool and enjoy. They’re great!
