These cookies are perfect to make with children to celebrate Thanksgiving. We realise that not all our readers are from America however we try and celebrate all major holidays both American, British and Irish.
A recipe I've had in my recipe book for many years, truly tried and tested.
290g Plain Flour
1tsp Baking Powder
2tsp Ground Ginger
0.5tsp Ground Cloves
4tbsp Treacle (known as Molasses in the US)
Preheat oven to 170c
Cream the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Beat the egg into the mix.
Add the 4tbsp Treacle and 1tbsp Water.
In a separate bowl sieve the flour, baking powder, ginger, cloves, cinnamon and salt together.
Slowly add the flour mix to the butter mix ensuring the mixture is well combined.
This forms your batter for your cookies, we need to leave the batter to sit in the fridge for 1 hour before we bake it.
We need to roll this dough out into balls about the size of a ping pong ball. The next step is completely optional and is to personal preference, Roll the balls of dough in the 2tbsp of sugar, lightly coating them.
Place these on a baking tray and press down until about half an inch thick.
Place the balls about 2 inches apart and bake for 9 mins, remove and allow to cool.
