Vegan Chocolate Cookies
1 1/2 cups flour + 1 tbsp
1 1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 cup vegan margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 1/2 tsp boiling water
1/4 cup sugar
Whisk together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cocoa in a small bowl and set aside.
Beat together the margarine and brown sugar. Add the molasses and mix well. Add half of the flour mixture and the baking soda mixture and combine well. Add the rest of the flour mixture.
Chill, covered for at least one hour. Pre-heat the oven to 325 degrees.
Spoon dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, then roll each ball in the sugar.
Bake 13-15 minutes, until surfaces start to crack slightly.
