GINGER REFRIGERATED COOKIES

This is an old recipe for sugar-free cookies. You can check the exchanges on your favorite sugar-free sweetener to adjust if desired.

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup Sprinkle Sweet or 4 tsp Liquid Sweet 10*
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease cookie sheets.

In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well. Shape into a 12-inch roll. Wrap in waxed paper. Chill until firm, about 4 hours. Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place cookies 2-inches apart on the lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes until cookies are lightly browned and set. Store in refrigerator.

Tip: Cookies can be made withoug chilling the dough. Prepare dough as directed above. Drop by teaspoons, 2-inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets or shape into 1-inch balls and let stand for a few minutes; flatten with fingers. Bake as directed.

With Sweet 10, 1 cookie = 37 calories
With Sprinkle Sweet, 1 cookie = 39 calories
