  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 cup full-flavor molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  1. In a large bowl, combine butter and margarine; beat with mixer for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cloves. Beat until well-mixed. Beat in molasses and egg. (Mixture will look curdled.) Add all-purpose flour and whole-wheat flour, beating just until combined. Cover and chill the dough for 2 to 3 hours or until easy to handle.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to ⅛-inch thickness. Using a 2- to 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Bake for 4 to 6 minutes or until edges are firm and centers are set.
