Spice Sugar Cookies
One of Gourmet's "50 Baking Favorites"
Gourmet October 1991
"The texture of these spicy
offerings varies according to baking time.
Underbake them if you are partial to a chewy cookie; give them an
extra minute or two in the oven if a crisp cookie is desired."
3/4 cup vegetable shortening,
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, beaten lightly
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Granulated sugar for dipping the
balls of dough
In a bowl cream the shortening with the brown sugar until the
light and fluffy and stir in the egg and the molasses. Into another bowl,
sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt,
add the flour mixture in batches to the shortening mixture, and blend
the dough well. Chill the dough, covered, for 1 hour.
Roll level tablespoons of the dough into balls, dip one side of each ball
into the granulated sugar, and arrange the balls, sugared sides up, about
3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake the cookies in batches in
the middle of a preheated 375-degree F. oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or
until they are puffed and cracked on top. Transfer the cookies with a
metal spatula to racks and let them cool. Makes about 40 cookies.
