This Nova Scotian cookie comes from "The Joy of Cookies" by Sharon Tyler Herbst. They may not be such neat or pretty cookies, but supposedly they are pretty tasty.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Grease and flour 3 large baking sheets. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir corn syrup and butter until butter melts. Remove from heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk; set aside for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ots, flour, baking powder and ginger. Stir in syrup mixture. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart, on prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake 9 to 13 minutes, or until deep golden brown. Cool on racks. Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or freeze for longer storage.
