2 1/2 c. flour 1 1/2 t. baking soda 3/4 t. cinnamon 1 t. ground ginger 1/2 t. ground cloves 1/2 t. salt 1/2 t. cayenne pepper 8 T. butter 1/2 c. sugar 1 c. brown sugar 1/3 c. molasses 1/4 c. egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, baking soda and spices and set aside. Cream the butter and sugars together. Add the molasses to the creamed butter, then add the egg whites until combined. Add the dry ingredients slowly.
Once incorporated, roll dough into 1 inch balls and place onto baking tray. Bake 8-10 minutes.
Once cool, eat as many as you can possibly stomach, lay down for a nap and wait for labor to begin!
I can attest to how well they work. With my second child, I ate 13, YES 13, in one sitting. Because when am I ever going to have the chance to eat that many ever again in my life?! About 5 hours later, labor began...
Although they may just cause indigestion... However, they're FLIPPIN' cookies!! What pregnant mama would say no to the request to eat a dozen cookies?
It couldn’t hurt to try, right? They taste like Christmas!
Have you ever been so desperate to go into labor that you tried something crazy?
Are you going to give these cookies a try?
Have you already?
I would love to hear your thoughts on labor-inducing methods.
