Whole Wheat Molasses Ginger Cookies

Whole Wheat Molasses Ginger Cookies

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup molasses

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the flours, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses. Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the molasses mixture.
Shape dough into walnut sized balls. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 35 cookies.

*Note: I think next time, I'm going to add a little less cloves.  Had a bit too much of a kick for me.  Still really good though!

Enjoy ^_^
