Cookies Anyone?

I was craving gingersnaps, and all the ones at the grocery
were too high in fat, so I made my own:

Fresh Ginger Cookies

1 cup whole wheat flour             
1 cup flour                       
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda             
1/2 tsp. salt                      
1 tsp. ground cloves               
3 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger         
1/4 cup fat substitute  (I used Lighter Bake)
2/3 cup sugar
egg substitute for 1 egg  (I used egg stuff in the carton)
2 Tbsp. molasses or dk. corn syrup (I used blackstrap molasses)

1 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. cinnamon

Mix flours, soda, salt and cloves in large bowl.  In small bowl,
combine fat sub. and sugar; mix in egg sub.  Add molasses and
ginger.  Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Refrigerate
dough at least 2 hours.  Combine sugar and cinnamon.  Roll dough
into balls, then in cinnamon-sugar.  Place on sprayed cookie
sheet; flatten with fork.  Bake at 350 for ~9 min. This made 
two dozen for me.
