Ginger Cream Cookie

  • 1/3 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon

Maple Icing

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar (don't have any, make your own)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp hot water


  • Mix butter, sugar, egg, molasses and water together in a large bowl. Stir dry ingredients together in a medium bowl and combine with wet ingredients. It will feel like a wet dough. Chill dough for at least 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a light greased cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes or until hardly no imprint remains when lightly touched. While slightly warm frost with maple flavored icing.
  • To make icing blend maple syrup and hot water together. Add sugar and stir. If it's too thick, add more hot water. Too thin, add more sugar. Spread on cookies with a spatula or drizzle. Makes approximately 4 dozen.
