Cookie Friday! Sparkled Ginger Cookies


To continue the ginger theme from earlier this week, today I have the recipe for the sparkled ginger cookies from Vegan with a Vengeance. This is hands down my favorite cookbook and I don't know how many times I've made these cookies. They are excellent for shipping out in holiday packages or to eat by yourself with a cup of tea while hovering over your wonky radiator pretending it is a fireplace at your country estate.

These cookies are all over the internet. You can find many photos on flickr and also the recipe floating about.

4 tablespoons turbinado or demerra sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup soy milk
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
-Place the turbinado sugar in a small bowl. It will be used to roll the cookies in
later.
-Sift together flour, baking soda, salt, and spices.
-In a separate bowl, mix together the oil, molasses, soy milk, sugar, and vanilla. -Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix.
-Roll into 1-inch balls, flatten into a 1 1/2-inch diameter disk, press into the
turbinado sugar and place 1 inch apart sugar side up on a cookie sheet.
-Bake 10 to 12 minutes and cool

Oooo...the sparkled ginger cookies have been de-glutenized at my house and are so yummy and often requested (read: demanded) by non-gf, non-veg friends and family.
