Taste of Tuesday with a side of Tunes!

01 October 2013
Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. I have been having a great day today since I'm being super productive! Already have most of everything I wanted to have done today and it is only lunch time. I'm watching Ink Master right now and I swear they have a marathon every Tuesday! Sadly, I seem to catch the same ones each week! I also always miss the new one because I fall asleep every time!!

Seeing at it is Taste of Tuesday, it is time to talk about food! This week we are talking about cookies! These cookies are easy but the only thing is you have to chill the dough for at least 8 hours! I have no idea why but that is what the recipe tell you to do! The cookies are good so it is worth it! They are ginger drop cookies! They are classic soft spice cookie. Last night I whipped up the dough in no time and then let it chill overnight! Honestly easiest cookies I have ever made! They are perfect with a cup of tea or maybe a pumpkin spice latte! Now, lets get on with the recipe so you can make these cookies too! 

Ginger Drop Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup molasses
2 eggs 
4 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda 
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup water

  • In your mixer or large bowl cream shortening and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in molasses and eggs. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternating with water.
  • Refridgerate dough for at least 8 hours
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls on to baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
And there you're done! Your house is going to smell amazing! The cinnamon and ginger just smell amazing and make for a delightful cookie! I hope you all it because they are delish!

And since I haven't linked up with Tuesday Tunes in awhile I decided to leave you with some music for your baking!


  1. I've never made ginger cookies - I'll have to try these! Thanks for linking up with us!

  2. The cookies sound great, and the song a great choice! Hope you have a fantastic day.
