Here’s a twist on Ginger Snaps. Using fresh ginger and apple sauce make these cookies like little cakes. A healthy and lowfat recipe.
2 1/4 cup flour (use whole wheat or a mix with all purpose)
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp freshly grated ginger (or 1 tsp dried)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 Tbl butter (softened)
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup molasses
Granulated sugar (optional)
Mix sugar and butter together. Add egg & molasses. Mix in applesauce then the dry ingredients. Shape into balls and roll in sugar. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Cook at 375 F oven for 8-10 minutes. Cool on rack.
These would be good frosted or sandwiched with creme filling or ice cream.
