Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 generous teaspoons ground ginger
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup butter
    1 cup Splenda for baking
    1 egg
    1 tablespoon water
    1/4 cup molasses
    2 tablespoons white sugar (for rolling the balls of dough in)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and Splenda until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, then stir in the water and molasses. Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture.

At this point you will want to chill the dough for a while, or it will be too sticky to handle.

When the dough is suitably chilled, shape it into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. Place the cookies 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet, and flatten slightly.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Number of Servings: 24

    I want to speak to articifical sweeteners. They are all unsafe and made with harmful chemicals EXCEPT for "Stevia". It is made from a plant and is completely safe. It comes in small packets or liquid form. Check health-food stores. - 12/11/08

    these are great so you don't like artifical sweetners they are helpful for some of us. Why do people feel like they have to scare everyone. The amount you would have to consume is more than you can eat in a month. Thank you for the warning but let us live our lives - 4/26/09

    Fabulous!! On a cold and wintry day after shoveling out the driveway. Oh my, oh my. These are soooooo goooood. I used some whole wheat flour and added the candied ginger for an extra bite. Thanks so much for this recipe. My husband and mother are also appreciative. - 1/28/09
