Crumbly Ginger Cookies

I'm still checking out recipes in some of the vintage Mennonite Recipe Books. I found this one for Ginger cookies. The word crumbly made me stop at this recipe. I like ginger cookies and I like crumbly cookies. I prefer crispy, crunchy, crumbly cookies over soft ones.

Crumbly Ginger Cookies:

2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 C butter
1 C sugar
1 egg
1/4 C light molasses

Cream butter and sugar.
Add egg and molasses, beat until light and fluffy.
Add dry ingredients.
Chill dough.

Roll into walnut sized balls.( I start with a cookie scoop)
Dip quickly in cool water then sugar.
Place on a cookie sheet pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes

Enjoy!
Peace in the Kitchen!
