Cinnamon Honey Gingersnap Cookies
Recipe by the Clif Family Culinary Team
Yield: 24 cookies
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 large egg
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
In a stand mixer, beat together shortening, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Beat in the egg, followed by molasses and the Clif Family Solar Grown™ Cinnamon Honey Spread until the mixture is creamy. Add flour and spices and whisk together until fully homogenous.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar for the coating and set aside.
Using a ½ oz sized ice cream scoop, form dough into balls, roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture and transfer to a parchment-lined sheet tray.
Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes, until golden and depending on how crispy or ‘snappy’ you’d like them. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
