Fresh Ginger Cookies

Soft and spicy, tangy and delicious, these are a favorite for the Holidays! They are also made with canola oil rather than butter or shortening for a heart-healthy treat.

1/2 c. coarsely chopped fresh ginger
1-1/2 c. pure canola oil
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. molasses
3 eggs
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
5 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp ground cloves
7 c. flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the fresh ginger with the oil in a food processor until well minced. Blend 3 c. sugar, molasses and eggs. Add the oil and ginger mixture and blend until smooth. Mix the dry ingredients and add to the wet mixture, blending well. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Roll dough into balls about 1 inch and roll in sugar. Bake until the tops crack and the cookies are set, about 11-12 minutes. Cool on wire racks and enjoy!
