Ginger Crinkle Cookies

Hey everyone! Most of you know I love to bake just as much as craft so I've decided to start sharing my baking with you all on the blog! First up, one of my FAVORITE cookies, Ginger Crinkle Cookies!! 

This recipe was one of the Food Network's 12 days of Cookie recipes around Christmas time. 

Here is the Recipe, enjoy!

Yield: about 4 dozen cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour 
2 teaspoons baking soda 
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger 
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 
1/2 cup vegetable shortening 
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened 
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 
1/2 cup granulated sugar 
1/4 cup molasses 
1 large egg 
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon turbinando sugar 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, salt, allspice and cloves.

Add the shortening, butter and the brown and granulated sugars to the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Slip in the molasses and egg and beat until well incorporated. Add the flour mixture by scoopfuls and beat until combined. 

Add the turbinado sugar to a small plate or bowl. Roll the dough into balls that are 1 inch in diameter (1/2 ounce in weight), then roll in the sugar. Place 12 balls on a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake the cookies 9 to 11 minutes, rotating halfway through the baking time. Cool on the baking sheets for 4 minutes, then continue cooling on wire racks. 

Repeat with the second batch.

Just a Note

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday!

Today I am sharing with you a Clean and Simple card I made. This is soooo not my style but I'm trying out a couple different things :) 

The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom's Simple Sayings

The rumple ribbon is from Lovebug Creations "Pink Clouds"! And I added in black jute ribbon.
