Well, these are just too good not to share, plus I'm probably going to lose the scrap of paper I wrote the recipe on, so it's really like I'm recording it for future generations!
Rolling in sugar gives the outside a sweet crunch.
Make sure you thoroughly stir the melted white bark...otherwise you get splurts of chocolate while trying to elegantly zig zag the cookies...see middle of picture.
Autumn-y, chewy, white chocolate-y goodness!
-Preheat the oven to 350.
-Mix 2/3 cup shortening an 1 cup white sugar.
-Add in 1 egg and 4 tablespoons molasses.
-Sift together 2 cups flour, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and gradually add to the shortening/sugar/molasses mixture.
-Roll the dough into balls (I got about 30 cookies out of one batch) and roll each ball in white sugar.
-Bake for 10-12 minutes.
-Drizzle melted white bark (candy coating) over the cookies in a zig-zag pattern.
Enjoy with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate!
