As far as cookies go, they do look pretty good, don't they?
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c molasses
11/2 tsp ginger
1 c all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c sugar for rolling the dough in
Directions: Mix together the wet ingredients. Sift the dry ingredients over the wet mixture, then stir to form the dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Form balls of dough about 1 tablespoon in size and then roll the balls in the sugar before placing them on the baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. These cookies will be devoured before they are ever allowed to completely cool! :)
