Brown sugar and ginger cookie recipe

It was really a no brainer when it came to deciding what to do with the left over brown sugar from the scrub...A few small changes to an old recipe created a quick cookie with really great flavor. Did I mention these were quick? I think that is the best and worst thing about this recipe. See below to bake your own!

After preheating the oven to 375˚F beat 6 oz of butter and 1 1/4 C of  brown sugar in a bowl until it has a smooth consistency. Add in 1 egg and beat the mixture well. Next, place 2 cups of flour, 1/2 C of chopped pecans (optional), 2 TSP of  baking soda, 1/2 TSP of  salt, 1/2 TSP of  ginger and 1/2 TSP of cinnamon (optional) in a separate bowl and mix well. Finally, add the dry ingredients to your butter and sugar mixture and beat until everything is combined. 

When finished, drop small spoonfuls of the dough onto an un-greased baking sheet and bake until the edges and/or the tops of the cookies are just brown, about 8 to 11 minutes.
