DIRECTIONS

  • For dough:.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and coffee. Cream butter and gradually add firmly packed brown sugar. Mix well.
  • Blend in dark corn syrup, egg and heavy cream. Beat well. Add dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  • Refrigerate dough for at least one hour. Roll out dough, 1/3 at a time on floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut into 3-inch rounds. Place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • For filling:.
  • Combine all filling ingredients and mix well. Place 1/2 teaspoons of filling in the center of each round. Shape into a bell by folding the two upper edges of dough toward the center, covering all but the lower edge of the filling, using a spatula if necessary. Place 1/4 or 1/2 of a maraschino cherry just below lower edge of filling for the clapper. Bake at 350 degrees 12-15 minutes.
