Soft Gingerbread Cookies with Cinnamon Drizzle 29


Soft Gingerbread cookiesI am sorry guys, but I have been struggling to find time to write lately.  I have felt a little rushed in everything I have been doing, and have been preparing for a few upcoming events, so my time is limited! If you are interested, Brigham City is having a great Women’s Forum coming up on November 1, 2014.  Be sure to check it out!!

I made these cookies last week and they were yummy! I especially liked them the same day with the cinnamon drizzle. Delicious.

If you are looking for a great alternative to chocolate chip cookies (my all-time-favorite along with a great soft sugar cookie), be sure to give these soft gingerbread cookies a try. They are chewy and filled with ginger and cinnamon.

Ingredients
  1. 3/4 c. margarine
  2. 1 c. sugar
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1 Tbsp. water
  5. 1/4 c. molasses
  6. 2 1/2 c. flour
  7. 2 tsp. ginger
  8. 1 tsp. baking soda
  9. 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  10. 1/4 tsp. salt
  11. 1/4 cup sugar
  12. 1/3 cup cinnamon chips
  13. 1-2 tsp oil
Instructions
  1. Cream margarine and sugar together. Add egg. Mix molasses and water together and add to creamed mixture. Mix flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt together. Add to molasses mixture.
  2. Dough will be quite soft.
  3. Scoop dough into small balls and drop into sugar.
  4. Roll in sugar and put onto cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 8-10 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven.
  6. Let sit on pan until slightly cooled.
  7. Mix cinnamon chips and oil in a bowl and microwave on 50% power for about 30 seconds. Mix. Heat again until chips have melted.
  8. Drizzle cinnamon chips over the cookies.
  9. Serve.
Notes
  1. I did not refrigerate these cookies, but you may choose to. The dough is very soft and sticky and may be easier to handle once refrigerated. Also, they are much better when rolled in sugar, so don't forget that step.

Today, I will leave you with a quote. I have been reading a book called Everyday Greatness and have found many great things there. This quote comes from the book:

“I want it said of me by those who knew me best, that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.”

Abraham Lincoln

So, sit down with me and have a cup of cocoa and a chewy gingerbread cookie. Sit for a moment and find that piece of yourself that wants to bloom. Then, when you see those thistles, don’t pass them around for the neighbors to see. Let’s plant a few more flowers.

And, don’t we all deserve a cookie now and then?
