Ginger Cookies

Ginger Cookies
1 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
4 t. finely grated orange peel (zest)
2 T. dark corn syrup
3 c. flour
2 t. soda
2 t. cinnamon
1 t. ginger
1/2 t. cloves
1/2 t. salt
Cream butter & sugar together. Add egg and mix well. Add peel & corn syrup and mix. Sift together dry ingredients. Stir into creamed mixture. Chill thoroughly. Roll out to 1/4" thickness. Cut into desired shapes...amphibious landing shape...family joke...and place 1" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375* for 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake. Cool before removing from sheet. Makes approx. 2 dozen. Will disappear rapidly. Nice to have icy cold milk on hand

Thanks for posting this! No other recipe comes close to how great this is! I bought my dark caro syrup yesterday so I can make them!
