Cookie Week - Low Fat Gingerbread Cookies
Whether you roll them out and decorate them, or make balls for circle cookies these are a classic. This recipe is from Prevention Magazine's website. It uses only 6 tablespoons of butter. I think that's especially good in the case of this recipe because I have had some greasy gingerbread men and well, yuck. They also use a nice amount of ginger as compared to the other complimentary spices.
By the way, a couple of quick facts about ginger - it can help with nausea and aid digestion. I have used it when suffering from the flu and friends have used it with morning sickness, it's a home run. And that's just one of its many medicinal uses.
Yours in Health,
