Santa's Favorite Cookies

Cane Syrup Cookies

1 cup sugar
2 1/3 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cloves
3/4 cup shortening
1 egg
1/3 cup cane syrup or molasses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all dry ingredients and cut in shortening*. Add egg and cane syrup (molasses can be used if cane syrup is not available in your area). Once combined, roll dough into small (1 inch) balls and roll in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet, leaving room for cookies to expand. Bake for 10 minutes. Cookies will develop a more crackled look and expand a bit more after you remove them from the oven. Yield: 3 dozen

* I use my Kitchenaid mixer because this is a very thick dough.

Happy Holidays!!!

I have no idea what Cane Syrup is, but those look a lot like the Four Spice Crackles I made this weekend. I may have to make these too... do a side-by-side comparison. Yeah, that sounds good.
