INDIA TREE Recipe for Ginger Cookies
Ginger cookies made with INDIA TREE Dark Muscovado and Demerara Sugars

Ginger Cookies
Makes about 5 dozen cookies
These totally addictive ginger cookies are made using two INDIA TREE sugars from Mauritius--Dark Muscovado and Demerara.

The Dark Muscovado enhances their molasses flavor and the Demerara adds sparkle and texture as well as another layer of taste.

These cookies are light, moist and delicate, not hard and chewy like most ginger snaps, and they remain that way for days when stored in an airtight container.
 
INGREDIENTS
 
3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup INDIA TREE Dark
Muscovado Sugar
2 tablespoons molasses
1 large egg
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon freshly ground INDIA TREE
Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground INDIA TREE
Cloves
1/2 cup INDIA TREE Demerara Sugar
 
INSTRUCTIONS
 
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. In a large bowl combine butter, INDIA TREE Dark Muscovado sugar, and molasses. Stir well, breaking up any large lumps of sugar with a fork. Stir in the egg.
3. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves. Stir into the butter mixture.
4. Place the INDIA TREE Demerara sugar in a bowl. Scoop out a heaping teaspoon of dough and roll into a ball with your hands. Coat the cookie ball with the INDIA TREE Demerara sugar by rolling it in the sugar and place it on a parchment or Teflon pad lined cookie sheet. Repeat this process, spacing the balls approximately one inch apart on the sheet.
5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the bottoms of the cookies are lightly browned. Transfer them to cooling racks and let cool completely. Store in airtight containers.
