Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 piece) equals 102 calories, 2 g fat (trace saturated fat), 4 mg cholesterol, 83 mg sodium, 20 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, molasses, water, oil and egg. Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, ginger and cinnamon; add to molasses mixture and beat until combined. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until easy to handle.
  2. On a well-floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with floured cookie cutters of your choice. Using a floured spatula, place cookies 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. If cookies will be hung, use a plastic straw to make a hole about 1/2 in. from the top of each.
  3. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Use straw to reopen holes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. Decorate with frosting if desired. Let dry completely. Thread ribbon through holes. Yield: 4 dozen.
