Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Courtesy of Karen


1 1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 cup molasses
3 tbs frozen concentrate orange juice, thawed


Combine flour, sugar, soda and ginger. Stir to mix well. Stir in molasses and OJ.

Coat baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on sheet. Flatten cookies to 1/4 inch with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.

Bake at 300 degrees for 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

HELPFUL HINT: Adding a bit of water and mixing with your hands will create moister cookies.
