Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

Courtesy of Karen

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.
