Recipe of the Day: Ginger Snaps

Ginger Snaps
Ginger adds zing to this traditional namesake cookie. Bake a batch when you want your home filled with its warm fragrance.
2 1/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ginger powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon cloves powder
dash sea salt
3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt. In another bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Beat in molasses and egg. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend. Form into a ball and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes or more.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Shape heaping tablespoons of dough into balls, and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten with a drinking glass that has been dipped in sugar. Bake until bottoms are lightly browned, about 10-12 minutes.
