One spice I have to have around Christmas is ginger. Many of my favorites treats around the Christmas season have ginger in them; gingersnaps, gingerbread cookies, and, my favorite, chai tea.
Ginger is known for its ability to lessen the severity of stomach aches and nausea. Ginger also has different health promoting properties.
Here is a recipe using ginger in a holiday treat.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
3/4 cup canola oil
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup light molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
Turbinado sugar, to garnish
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a cookie sheet with coking spray. In a large bowl, combine oil, sugar, molasses, vanilla and eggs. In a medium bowl, combine flour, seasoning, baking soda, and salt. Slowly pour flour mixture into molasses mixture; mix well. Roll dough into ball and dip tops of cookies in turbinado sugar. Flatten cookies out on baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
