My daughter told me she wanted gingerbread cookies.  I thought…uggh.  I’m not a ginger fan. So I started looking at different recipes and researching comments others made on famous recipes.  I came up with a somewhat unique recipe.  These cookies turned out delicious and I’m not even a gingerbread fan.

Gingerbread Cookie Recipe


Directions:  Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and 1 c sugar until fluffy.  Beat in egg. Stir in maple syrup and water. Gradually stir in remaining ingredients. Freeze dough for 30 minutes.  This makes them crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. Shape dough into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 2 tbsp sugar.  Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Flatten slightly.  Bake 8-10 minutes.  Cool for 5 minutes.
