Soft Gingerbread Cookies
3/4 cup molasses
1/3 cup Clearly Organic Brown Sugar
1/3 cup water
3 Tablespoons Clearly Organic Butter, softened
3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Ginger
1 teaspoon Clearly Organic Ground Cinnamon
In a medium bowl or standing mixer, beat together molasses, brown sugar, water, and softened butter. Combine until smooth. In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda, allspice, ginger, and cinnamon. Stir to combine dry ingredients. Then add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, one cup at a time, stirring or beating with a mixer to evenly distribute.
Combine all ingredients and form dough into a ball. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly flour your counter and roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut dough with desired shapes and place on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes then allow cookies to cool on a wire rack. Decorate as desired.
