Below are the requirements and steps in preparing this wonderful soft gingerbread cookie recipe.
- 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Celsius.
- Gather and sift together all the dry ingredients -- flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt -- and set aside in a bowl.
- Get a large bowl and beat together margarine and sugar until the combination gets fluffy and has the light appearance.
- Add the egg and continue beating. Add in the water and molasses, and beat to incorporate. Just reserve that last 2 tbsp of white sugar at this point and keep it aside.
- Add the powder mixture gradually into the creamy mixture until they are well combined.
- Chill the dough first for about half an hour to ensure a non-messy or sticky rolling afterwards.
- Put the remaining two tablespoons of white sugar into a small bowl, or a saucer is preferred.
- Make walnut-shaped balls out of the prepared dough and roll them into the white sugar afterwards.
- Place the cookie mixture into the ungreased cookie sheet, maintaining an allowance of two inches of space around each cookie, and then flatten each slightly.
- Put it in the oven and let it bake inside the pre-heated oven for eight to 10 minutes.
- Turn off the oven and let them sit in there for about five minutes as you let the oven cool down. Take them out for another cooling period.
- Keep in a vacuum cookie jar or sealed bags if you’re not going to eat them right away.
