Happy holidays everyone! Do you like Christmas cookies? Here are 2 simple recipes:
From allrecipes.com: Grandma’s Gingersnap Cookies:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/3 cup cinnamon sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F(275 degrees C).
Mix the first 5 ingredients.
Beat the butter until creamy. Add the 1 cup of sugar gradually and continue beating. Beat in the egg and molasses.
Sift into this about 1/3 of the flour mixture, stirring and blending well. Repeat until all is added. Roll the dough into tiny balls by hand, rolling each in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes until the tops are rounded and slightly cracked. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an air-tight container.
