Gingerbread Cookies

What you need: 

4 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup raw sugar
1 egg equivalent (powdered replacement, mix according to packet instructions)
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
4 teaspoon ground ginger (I use around 6!!)
1 teaspoon ground cloves
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons golden syrup

What you do: 

Cream margarine and raw sugar, add egg replacement, mix. Add flour, soda and spices, then golden syrup. Mix well ( if you find that the mixture is a little dry, add 1/2 a tablespoon more golden syrup).
Roll mixture into teaspoon sized balls (or bigger if you like!), flatten slightly and place on cookie tray.
Bake for 10 minutes in a moderate oven.
Yummy hot or cold!

I've never  ended up  with cookies like these  before, the ''dough'' IS powdery , there  is either too much flour in this recipe  or not  enough wet ingredients
even after  i added  the extra  moisture  to the  recipe  by adding  soy milk  and  adjusting the spices (adding more) , my cookies  came out tasting  like flour even if the batter did not taste like it at the time, thats why i thought it  would come out fine...the  sugar  content was  fine i thought,  because Ive  used that  much sugar in cookie recipes before  and  had  no problem with the taste, i think there  is just way too much flour..
I'm  not  going to bin the cookies  only  because i hate  wasting , thank the gods  i have green tea to drink them with... sorry i  don't mean this in a mean way , I'm just being honest.. :-\  who ever  makes this recipe and  fallows it exactly  will fine out that they  will  have to tweak this recipe  quite a lot  to get it  just right...

(I'm normally positive on reviews but there's nothing positive about these cookies  :-X )

I just made these and they're great! I cut down on the ginger by a tablespoon and used molasses instead of corn syrup. I rolled them out and cut them into gingerbread men-I gave them faces with gel food coloring and buttons with raisins and choc. chips. They're so cute and Christmas-y! LOL.  ;D But watch out, the dough was very dry, almost powdery so I added a little more than 1/4 cup rice milk, baked @ 350 for 10 mins and it was perfect.

Okay, so I tried the recipe... I was good, but needed more spice. Also it was moist enough to roll out, and I didn't have to use soymilk. All in all - nice cookies!  :P

It says: "Bake in a moderate oven", and I ask: What is that in temperatures?  ;)

I used about 350 or so and just watched them

Thanks!  :)

Dough is much too dry, but if you add some soymilk it turns out perfectly.  Delicious.
