These cookies call for both fresh and powdered ginger so they have a very distinct ginger flavor. If you don’t have fresh ginger, you can double the powdered ginger.

• 1/2 c. coconut oil or shortening (Spectrum)
• 1/2 c. dark brown sugar
• 1/4 c. white sugar
• 1 T. vanilla
• 1 egg (or egg replacer)
• 3 T. molasses
• 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Baking Mix
• 2 t. ginger
• 2 t. fresh grated ginger

Makes 2 dozen 2 inch cookies.
Cream shortening with both sugars, add vanilla and mix until well blended. Add egg or egg replacer. Add molasses and blend well. Fold in dry ingredients.
