These are delicious - like light, fruity gingersnaps. Try to get as little sugar on the cookie sheet as possible to avoid it burning.


2 cups All purpose flour
2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon Ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Sugar
3 tablespoon Vegetable oil; (like corn or canola)
2 1/2 tablespoons Butter; softened
2 1/2 teaspoons Orange zest; finely grated
1 teaspoon Lemon zest; finely grated
1 large Egg
1/4 cup Molasses; light or dark
2 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla
Sugar; for garnish

Original recipe makes 4



1. Preheat oven to 375. Whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.

2. Beat sugar, oil, butter and zests until well combined.

3. Add egg, molasses and vanilla, beat until well blended.

4. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

5. Form 3/4 inch balls, and spacing over 2 inches apart, put on cookie sheet. Oil the bottom of a large glass and dip into sugar. Flatten the balls to 1/4 inch thickness.

6. Bake 3 minutes or until just golden, and allow the cookie trays to cool slightly between baking.
