I'm already pretending it's Christmastime, despite the 80-degree weather outside. These spicy cookies go great with a cup of tea! Iced tea, that is.

1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine:
- 1/2 c. canola oil
- 1/2 c. white or brown sugar
- 1/2 c. molasses
- 1 T. hot water

2. Stir in and mix well:
- 1 3/4 c. flour
- 2 t. ginger
- 2 t. cinnamon
- 1 t. baking soda
- 1/4 t. salt

3. Bake on a greased cookie tray for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes about 20 cookies.

Awesome recipe!

One suggestion, after mixing the wet ingredients and sugar, add the ginger and cinnamon and mix for a few minutes before adding the remaining dry ingredients.

I made them for my yoga class and everyone loved them! Thank you.

These taste just like the ones from Sprouts Farmers Market, but better, of course!

Next time, I need to allow more space between cookies since they expanded.

Dipped these thin crispy beauties in some soy milk and I was in absolute ginger bliss.

question: there's one commenter that says "they always turn out super moist" and another commenter states these are "thin crispy beauties". To those who tried this recipe, are these "snaps" or soft cookies.
