Ginger Creams

I didn’t frost these cookies this time; I was under time constraints.  However, the cookies are good unfrosted as well as frosted.

GINGER CREAMS

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup hot water

1/2 cup dark molasses

1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

1 egg

Combine all the above ingredients.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cloves

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.  Add to the cookie ingredients until well blended.  Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto a prepared cookie sheet.  Bake in a 375 degree F. oven for 10-15 minutes.

FROSTING

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons butter, softened

3 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the confectioners’ sugar, softened butter, milk, and vanilla.  Frost the cookies.

Makes 1 dozen cookies (although I made about 2 dozen with this recipe).
