(fourteen) or ginger spice cookies

One thing I miss while at BMC is baking. I really love to bake. I’m actually pretty good at it, too. It’s a stress relief for me, but also I enjoy making baked goods for people I love.

Being Fall, I decided that I should make my Ginger Spice Cookies

I’ll give it to you- they look bland but I pinky promise you they are not. It’s one of those cookies that go really good with a cup of tea, and weather below 65 degrees. So here you go-

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Whisk 1/2 cup of white sugar, 3/4 cups of salted butter, 1 egg white, and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  • Keep Whisking it!! Until it looks like fluffy clouds.

  • Roll the dough into little balls (half a fist full), and then roll them into sugar.

  • Nah-Dah! Done! Enjoy your cookies, and the smell of spices in your kitchen!
