ginger-chews recipe

 I love these ginger cookies and have successfully used them with a
 cookie cutter instead of flattening with a glass.  The cookie cutter
 method is much easier!  These cookies, like the Hannukah Stars, are
 dark in color.  But, you could probably make a powdered sugar, skim
 milk (and maybe a little lemon juice) to make the icing.  I've seen
 lots of ginger cookies with icing, so it might work.

 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           packed brown sugar
    1      tablespoon    prune puree 
      3/4  cup           molasses
      1/3  cup           apple juice -- unsweetened
    3      cups          all-purpose flour -- unbleached
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
    1      teaspoon      ground ginger
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
 Beat the brown sugar, pruen puree, and molasses with an electric mixer
 until smooth.  Add the apple juice and beat again.  Add the flour,
 baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt and beat until well mixed.
 Covered and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and put parchment paper on two
 baking sheets (or spray the sheets with nonstick cooking spray.)
 Rolled the chilled dough into balls about the size of a large marble.
 Arrange the balls on the baking sheets and flatten them slightly with
 a glass with flour on the bottom of the glass to prevent sticking.
 Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned.
 For extra-crisp cookies, bake for an additional minute.  Cool the
 cookies on a wire rack.  Repeat until all the cookes are baked.
