Really Yummy Ginger Cookies
2 cups sifted flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger (I use freshly grated, but a little less than 1 full tsp)
1/2 teaspoon cloves (I use the pulvarizied jar variety)
3/4 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg substitute
1/4 cup molasses
a small bowl of sugar for dipping
Preheat oven to 350.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. In another bowl cream until soft: margarine and 1 cup of vegan sugar, add the ginger. Add to the wet mix: egg substitute and molasses till blended, then add ~a little at a time~ the dry ingredients to the wet mix.
Form into 1 balls, dip just the top into vegan sugar bowl, then place on prepared cookie sheet, vegan sugared side up....(the baking sheet can be a non-stick or a greased regular). Place a few inches apart on sheet and bake for 12 to 15 mins. * I opt for the lower time, and let the cookies cool for just a few mins. on the sheet before transfering them to a cooling rack. This way they stay chewy. If you cook for too long, they become hard upon cooling....
Enjoy! My family just eats these up!:)
