What could be better this Holiday season than baking some cookies for your friends and listening to some good tunes while doing so? Probably nothing, unless you were sitting playing a Teton guitar while someone else did the baking.

We asked our staff what their go-to tunes are this time of year. Katie also shared this great recipe. “Nothing says Christmas like soft, chewy ginger cookies to go with a cold glass of eggnog,” she said.

 

Ginger Cookies

Ingredients:

2 1/4 cups flour

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup of softened butter

1 cup sugar

1 egg

1 tbsp water (warm is best)

1/4 cup molasses

sugar (for rolling)

Instructions:

* Preheat oven to 350 degrees

* Sift flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; set aside.

* In large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy

* Beat in egg, then stir in water and molasses.

* Fold in flour mixture and mix until well combined.

* Shape dough into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar and place on cookie sheet.

(the recipe says to use an ungreased sheet, but I always put my cookies on parchment or wax paper-just in case)

* Bake for 7 to 10 minutes.

* Allow cookies to cool on sheet for 5 minutes before removing.

* Pour yourself a glass of cold eggnog or chocolate nog (yum!), grab a warm cookie and ENJOY!

Until next time,
