Ty’s Gingerbread Cookies

December 25, 2011

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying the festivities. I am in New York right now exhausted from working at the bakery. During my massive cookie mailing the other week I also made gingerbread cookies (it’s a staple for Christmas, duh!).

I learned after a few trial and errors that I really do not like a lot of molasses. It’s a very potent ingredient that I personally think overpowers the cookie. I have made gingerbread-honey cookies with NO molasses, but they aren’t gingerbready enough. I learned the best solution is to take any recipe and do a 2:1 ratio of honey to molasses.

This is the recipe I used from Simply Recipes, but instead of the ½ cup of molasses, I used 1/2 cup of honey and 1/4 cup of molasses. Actually… I will be honest, I just eye-balled it and tried it as I went. It might have even been a little more of equal parts. I am not sure it makes too much of a difference.

Either way, these seem to have a good shelf life so it was good for shipping. I suppose mailing him gingerbread makes it a birthmas, oh well.

I hope you have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful new year! I can only hope 2012 can provide much needed happiness and page turning for most of us.

    jwg Posted on Buy yourself a litlte cookbook called One Cup Cooking . They have it on Amazon. It’s a whole curriculum based on kids making individual portions of cool things like pizzas and gingerbread. I highly recommend the Gingerbread Pineapple Upside Down cake.
