So much sugar

These cookies are nice and moist in the center and crisp outside.

And they taste fantastic.

Ginger Snaps

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup molasses

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup sugar

In a large bowl, beat brown sugar and butter until blended. Beat in egg and molasses. Combine the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves; gradually add to brown sugar mixture a handful at a time and mix well (dough will be stiff). Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Shape dough into 1 in. balls. Roll in sugar. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until set. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
