Groundhog Day is one of our little celebrations around here.
When I got married, my mom's best friend bought me a Groundhog Cookie Cutter and gave me the recipe for Groundhog Cookies. They're a wonderful light gingersnap type cookie - I look forward to making them every year. Then I enjoy sharing them with the other native Pennsylvanians at school - they get this Phil thing.
Groundhog CookiesSift together:
2 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. ginger
1 t. cloves
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. molasses
1 egg yolk
Mix wet and dry ingredients together. Chill dough for 1 hour, then roll out 1/8 inch thick and cut. Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 min.
This is one of those recipes that I almost always double. Everyone loves them.
