Spice cookies just like Grandma used to make--buttery and crisp, so good they don't need frosting.
Combine sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, corn syrup and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add all remaining ingredients except powdered sugar; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into round ball; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1-2 hours until firm or up to 3 days.
Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 to 3-inch star cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5-7 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over cooled cookies.

The best ginger cookie recipe ever. I t is a holiday staple around our house now.
This recipe makes delicious cookies and I have emailed or shared it with at least three people in the past two weeks. I used the dark corn syrup instead of molasses. One recipe made 4 - 5 dozen 4 inch gingerbread men.
I have to be the Queen of these cookies. I have been making them for 10 years, every December.When I lived in NYC I sent them West. Now I mail them East and points further North from where I live in California. Everybody loves them. I'm late this year. About to start mt first batch.
I found the dough to be too dry so I just added a little water to make pliable. I would cut the flour down to 2 1/2 cups next time. I also added a 1/2 tsp. of cardamom. It was a very nice and tasty cookie. I will be adding this to my Christmas baking list for the years to come.
Easy to make, easy to roll out and cut. Taste was exceptional.

Let’s be honest – I’m always looking for quick meal ideas. By the time I get home from work, I have about a half hour to throw dinner together and get it on the table. Most (okay, ALL of the time) I have an unhappy one-year-old pulling at my leg as if to say, “Mom, why is there not food on my high chair tray yet?!” So, when it comes to meals, the quicker the better.
Bring the bold flavors of
ginger and sesame to a
variety of meals.
Sweet corn on the cob is one of summer’s best treats. It’s my go-to stop at the Minnesota State Fair where they grill the corn in the husks, then peel back the husks and dunk them in vats of melted butter…mmm, is it late August yet?! More ...
