Ginger Delight!

What can I say?

Christmas is in the air...:)

Today I have been baking!!! Among the things I have been making are these delectable delights! Seriously, try them!! If you all lived closer, we could have a ginger delight party where I would serve you eggnog and these yummies.

But instead, you'll just have to take my word for it...


They are pretty simple too!
When my mom first gave me this recipe last year I was like, nah..not into ginger cookies that much, but when I made them..oh man.

Let's just say, this year I have been good and only ate 2...

Trust me, this is a record I am proud of!

Here is the recipe for you all to give it a go..

Dipped Ginger Cookies
2 cups sugar
1 ½ cups oil
2 eggs
Beat well. 

Stir in:  ½ cup molasses ( I am in the Uk and use treacle, which works too)

Combine:   4 cups flour
                  4 tsp. Baking soda
                  1 Tbsp. Ginger
                  2 tsp. Cinnamon
                  1 tsp. Salt

Stir dry ingredients into sugar mixture.  Roll into ¾ inch balls and put 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet.  Don’t flatten the balls.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  Let cookies cool.
Melt 2 pk. vanilla chips with ¼ cup shortening (or I just use white easy melt chocolate that is specially for dipping).  Dip each cookie halfway into melted chips . Put on waxed paper to set. Eat way more than is good for until you feel sick. Trust me-this is the most important step. Then all that is left for you to do is fall in an untidy heap on the couch and sleep off the sugar aches...
