Recipe: Passion Cookies for May Day

To celebrate the beautiful weather we are having here in Portland and to welcome the coming May, I decided to whip up a batch of Passion Cookies. These cookies are the perfect spring treat. Sweet, spicy and crunchy. I plan to treat myself to some May Wine and cookies tomorrow evening to welcome in the warm weather and the May.

Passion Cookies:
• ¾ cup unsalted butter
• 1 cup brown sugar
• 1 egg
• ¼ cup molasses
• 1¾ cups whole grain flour
• ½ tsp. salt
• 3 tsp. ground cinnamon
• 1½ tsp. ground cloves
• 5 tsp. powdered ginger
• 2 tsp. baking soda
• ½ cup crystallized ginger, coarsely chopped (optional)
• Red sugar sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar then beat in the egg and molasses.

Sift the dry ingredients into a medium bowl, then stir into the wet batter. Add crystallized ginger and mix until combined. Place dough in the refrigerator to chill at least 20 minutes.

Using a rolling pin and a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4" thick. Cut out with a cookie cutter. Press one side of the cookie into a plate of red sprinkles then place sugar side up onto the baking sheet, about 3 inches apart. Bake 9-11 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
