Ingredients

    1/3 c butter or margarine, softened
    3/4 c packed brown sugar
    1/4 c dark molasses
    1 tsp ginger, ground
    1 tsp cinnamon, ground

Directions

Beat the butter on medium-high speed in a large mixing bowl for 2 minutes. Beat in the brown sugar. Add the molasses, ginger, and cinnamon, mix thoroughly. Add the egg. Add the baking powder. Mix in as much of the flour & wheat flour as you can with the electric mixer. Stir in any remaining by hand. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
Heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray 3-4 cookie sheets with non-stick cooking spray.
Shape into 1/2 inch balls, roll in granulated sugar mixed with cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until cookies are set and tops crack.
When cookies have cooled, stir the cinnamon into the cream cheese frosting and spread onto half the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies.
