CULINARY ARTS: 3 Christmas cookies you can easily bake

Published: Thursday, December 13, 2012 at 10:42 AM.

5 teaspoons ground ginger

4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon powdered cloves

1 teaspoon grated nutmeg

1 teaspoon ground allspice

DIRECTIONS: Microwave the molasses in its jar about a half-minute to make it easier to pour. Pour it into a saucepan, add the butter and heat on medium-low to melt the butter. Let it cool and then beat in the eggs.

In a large mixing bowl — the bigger the better — measure all the dry ingredients and mix well. Make a “well” in the center, pour in the molasses mixture and mix together using a sturdy large spoon. You may have to use your hands as it gets stiffer. The dough will be soft and sticky.
