Swedish Ginger Cookies

makes: 4 dozen

1 cup butter
1-1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1-1/2 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoon dark corn syrup
1 tablespoon water
3¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking soda
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoons ground ginger
½ tablespoon ground cloves

Cream the butter and sugar until light. Add the egg, orange rind, corn syrup, and water blending well. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the butter mixture. Chill the dough thoroughly. Preheat oven to 350F . Roll out very thin, about ⅛-inch and cut with cookie cutters. Place on ungreased cookie sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes.

Sally from Connecticut says: This cookie cooks up nice and crisp. Very flavorful. A very good version of a ginger cookie. Made about 4 dozen. I used a heart-shaped (1 1/2 “) cookie cutter for Valentine’s Day.
