    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For rolling balls in before baking


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    2. 2
      Put margarine, brown sugar, molasses, egg, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, clove, and ginger into mixing bowl and mix.
    3. 3
      Roll into walnut size balls.
    4. 4
      Put about 1/2 cup of regular sugar in cereal size bowl, and 1/2 cup water in ramekin size dish.
    5. 5
      Roll dough ball in sugar.
    6. 6
      Place wide apart on slightly greased cookie sheet; dip a glass into water and flatten the cookie.
    7. 7
      Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes, or until done to your family's preferences.
    8. 8
      NOTE: If it is a dark cookie sheet it will take less time than on a brand new shiny sheet; and if they sit on the hot sheet after removing from oven they will harden even more. Some like these cookies hard but I do not.

      I was expecting more of a zing when I bit into these. I also cooked them longer than the 8 minutes and left them on the cookie sheet, but I never got them crispy enough. Maybe I could put more Ginger in them? Anyways, I might try them again and see how it goes. Also all I had was jumbo eggs and that might have made them not get hard. Anyways, thanks for the recipe; they were really easy and fast to make. I did this for the "Cookbook Tag" game.

      I made these for Lemon Cheesecake Sandwiches - and they were great both with and without the filling. I was surprised by how much the cookies spread as they baked. For ZWT6 N.

      I liked these biscuits just the right amount of spiciness. I made some soft and some hard ones. Made for ZWT 6
