Ginger Sparkles

     This is a recipe given to me by a co worker. It is a ginger cookie that his mother always makes for the holidays. It is a smaller quantity recipe than my gingerbread and a great introduction to ginger cookies. Besides, every holiday needs a little Sparkle.

Ginger Sparkles

2 – 2 1/4 c flour (sifted)
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 c butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup or 4 tablespoons molasses
Saucer of white sugar for rolling
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Cream together shortening, molasses and sugar, beat in egg, then rest of ingredients.  
Roll into 1“  balls then roll in white sugar.
 Bake 11-12 min on an ungreased, parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

     You could also use coloured sugar to roll the cookies, if you wanted to have sparkle and colour.

     Thanks for sharing the recipe, Bob. Happy baking and enjoy.
