Title:   Gingerbread Cookies *****
Category:   Cookies - Clean (Only natural/organic ingredients), Vegetarian
From:   Neal Barnard
1/2 c raw sugar or other sweetener
1 t powdered ginger
1 t cinnamon
1 1/2 t baking soda
1/4 t sea salt
1/3 c molasses
1/3 c soy milk
2 1/4 c whole wheat pastry flour
Directions:   Mix the sugar, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Add the molasses and soy milk and mix well. Add 1 cup of flour and mix well. Mix in enough of the remaining flour to make a very stiff dough (if mixing by hand, knead the dough to thoroughly mix the flour). Preheat oven to 275F. Lightly mist two or three baking sheets with vegetable oil spray, then dust them with flour. On a floured surface, roll a portion of the dough with a flour-dusted rolling pin to a 1/16-inch thickness. Cut the dough into shapes with flour-dusted cookie cutters or a flour-dusted knife. Using a metal spatula, carefully transfer the cookies to the baking sheets. Bake until the edges are dry and the center give just slightly when pressed, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer with a spatula to a wire rack to cool. Once cooled, store in an airtight container.
Makes:   about 48 cookies
