Soft Ginger Cookies With Orange Glaze


1 cup Buttermilk

2 tsp baking soda

3/4 cup vegetable oil

1 cup sugar

1 cup dark molasses

2 eggs

3 3/4 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp salt

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp grated nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground allspice

1/2 tsp ground cloves


2 cup plus 1 Tbsp confectioners sugar

1 Tbsp butter (very soft)

1/4 cup orange juice

2 tsp grated orange zest

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

dash of salt

In a small bowl combine buttermilk and baking soda and set aside. They will foam up. In a larger bowl combine oil, sugar, molasses and eggs and beat until well mixed (about 1 minute). Add the buttermilk mixture and blend. Sift together dry ingredients. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet mixture. Let mixture stand 15 minutes.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Drop batter by heaping tablespoons onto oiled cookie sheet. Bake 8 to 9 minutes until the top springs back when touched with your finger. Do Not overbake. The cookies should be quite soft.

While cookies are baking combine glaze ingredients. Remove cookies to wax paper lined wire rack. Frost while warm with 1/2 tsp of glaze for each cookie. Let cool completely. Transfer to trays and place in freezer to completely set if necessary or to freeze for storage. Once frozen pack in tins in single layers separated by wax paper. These freeze well.
