3/4 C butter-flavored Crisco
1 C brown sugar
1/4 C molasses
2 1/4 C freshly ground and sifted whole wheat flour
2 1/8 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
2 1/8 tsp ground ginger (add 1/8 tsp more?)
1 T + 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (add 1/4 tsp more?
1 tsp cloves
Cream Crisco, brown sugar, molasses and egg by mixing on medium speed for about 30 seconds and then on high speed for 2 minutes. Sift dry ingredients and stir into molasses mixture. Form balls (about 1 in. in diameter.) Roll tops and sides of dough balls in white sugar. Place 2 in. apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake about 10 minutes at 375 degrees. Makes about 40-45 cookies.
P.S. We are doing marshmallows and hot chocolate packets for neighbors again this year. They are cheap, easy and you can make wonderful memories making them with your kiddos!!!
