Original recipe makes 4 dozen cookies Change Servings


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon and cloves in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Beat butter, Stevia in the Raw, and 1/4 cup Sugar in the Raw in a large bowl with mixer at medium high speed until well mixed. Beat in egg and corn syrup until smooth. Stir in flour mixture. Refrigerate dough 1 to 2 hours or until easy to handle. (See TIP below.)
  4. Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup Sugar in the Raw in a small dish. Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets.
  5. Bake 7 to 10 minutes or just until edges begin to brown. (Do not overbake or cookies will be dry.) Cool 1 minute on baking sheet, then remove to wire racks to finish cooling.

I would've rated this 5 stars, but I made some drastic changes, so it's not the recipe as written per se. My changes: Instead of stevia, and sugar in the raw (whatever that is) I just used regular old white sugar. I also used white corn syrup. Instead of butter, I substituted the same amount of oil since we're on a dairy-free diet. I did not bother with putting the dough in the fridge for 2 hours, since it was not overly sticky when I was done mixing. I also didn't bother with rolling the balls in extra sugar. With my changes, this was a quick, easy and delicious recipe that I'll be making again, for sure! These are YUMMY and didn't last long at all. Next time though, I will be doubling the recipe. As written, it says it makes 48 cookies, but in fact I only came out with 24, and did not make them overly large. I don't know how the recipe submitter could possibly come up with 48 out of this unless they were fingernail sized cookies. :P
