Re: the cookie thread

Since we're going to be spread all over the map during Thanksgiving weekend, my family got together this weekend for a pre-holiday bash. We spent some time talking about various recipes, and my niece asked me for a copy of a recipe for whole wheat gingersnaps. After I sent it off to her, I figured I might as well put it up here as well and add another log to the fire:

Whole Wheat Gingersnaps

1 cup packed brown sugar
cup shortening
cup molasses
2 tablespoons milk
1 egg
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
teaspoon ground cloves
teaspoon salt
granulated sugar

Mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses, milk and egg in medium bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients except granulated sugar. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Heat oven to 375. Lightly grease cookie sheet. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls. Dip tops in granulated sugar. Place balls, sugared sides up, 3 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or just until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheet. Yield: 4 dozen cookies.
