"Excellent recipe! Makes delicious gooey cookies. They are especially great right out of the oven with a glass of milk! I have made these for my grandparents, aunt and uncle, and all my teachers! They all loved them. Thank you for this fabulous recipe!"- seaturtles33
Tip: Another recipe with the exact-same name "Big Soft Ginger Cookies" ranks higher.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses.
Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture. Shape dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.
Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
heleenventer 1 year agoGreat recipe! Easy to make. Came out crunchy with a chewy centre. If you want a spicier cookie I recommend double or even tripling the spices. I doubled and still feel it needs more.
