directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F and line the cookie sheet with parchment paper (this keeps the cookies softer).
  • Cream the margarine and brown sugar in a large bowl, then stir in the egg whites(beaten) and the molasses and vinegar.
  • Sift together remaining ingredients and add to the wet mixture.
  • Shape into 24 balls and roll them in the additional granulated sugar. Lightly press them on the cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes. Let the cookies sit on the pan for about 2 minutes to firm slightly, then slide onto a cooling rack. ENJOY!
  • Store these in an airtight container in layers lined with wax paper (prevents sogginess).

    Wow. These were wonderful! The spices were just right and even though whole wheat flour was used, the cookies were definetly not dry! I will be making these again. Thanks for the recipe!

    These came out great! I substituted coconut oil for the margarine and cut the brown sugar to half. Excellent recipe...family loved them!!!

    I do not see how you can call these cookies healthy when you are using margarine. Margarine is a hydrogenated oil which is not healthy. It is known to not be undigestable and it clogs your arteries. You should become more informed
