Spicy Ginger Cookies in a Jar

Spicy Ginger Cookies in a Jar
4 cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup molasses
1 1/4 cups sugar

Instructions:

1. Combine flour, spices, salt, and baking soda - stir well. Place flour mixture in a clean mason jar. Pack down tight so everything will fit in the jar. (Use a spoon or a mallet.) Add other ingredients, one item at a time, packing each layer down.

2. Put the lid on the jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. You can add a personalized label, if you wish. As an added touch, tie a wooden spoon to the lid with a piece of ribbon.


Print out the following instructions on a gift card and tape the card to the jar:

Whip 1 cup of butter or shortening until light and fluffy.

Add 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until mixed.
Stir in the ingredients from this jar until well combined.
Drop teaspoons of dough on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 - 14 minutes at 350 degrees F.
