Danielle's Ginger Cookies

Danielle and I brought some ginger cookies to St. Nick's Christmas Extravaganza last night. Recipe comes from here, with possibly the most 5 star Allrecipe ratings ever.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

2 1/4 C flour
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C margarine, softened
1 C white sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp water
1/4 C molasses
2 tbsp white sugar
Optional: chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. In a large bowl cream together the margarine and one cup sugar. Beat in the egg and then stir in the water and molasses. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients. If you want, stir in the chocolate chunks. Shape the dough into balls, roll in sugar, and flatten slightly on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on the tray, then transfer to a cooling wrack. 

Party goers gave rave reviews!

Danielle says "you betcha."
