Soft Gingerbread Cookies

You’ll find these cookies to be much softer than their traditional counterpart which is why they’re one of my favorite Christmas cookies.



1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Sift the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Set aside.

2. Cream the butter and 1 cup sugar. Then beat in the egg. Stir in water and molasses and gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Roll the dough in 1-inch balls and roll in 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place them onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

3. Bake for approximately 10 minutes and allow to cool before eating. Store in an airtight container.
