RG

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sifted flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter (no substitution)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon FRESH ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • About 1 cup molasses

Instructions

  1. Mix the flour, sugar, ginger and salt together.
  2. Cut cold butter into the mixture with a pastry blender or work in with your fingertips.
  3. Add just enough molasses to hold the ingredients together without being sticky.
  4. Wrap the dough air-tight and chill overnight in the refrigerator.
  5. Roll dough very thin on a well-floured board and cut as desired or shape into "logs" and slice into rounds.
  6. Bake on foil-lined, ungreased cookie sheets for about 8 minutes.

Makes about 5 dozen, 2-inch cookies.
