"Labor Inducing" Cookie Recipe

A lot of moms start hunting for ideas to naturally induce labor when they get to the end of pregnancy.  You may have heard that taking a ride on a bumpy road, walking, or sex may help to bring on labor, but what other natural things can you try?  Some moms swear that ginger can jump start your labor.  Others say this is just a wives tale.  In any case, when you get to your due date and your baby is not coming out, eating some tasty “labor inducing” ginger cookies might just sound appealing.  It may not start your labor, but this spicy gingersnap cookie recipe from Food Network did just that for one mom.  Read her story at ShoppingForTwo.com.

Labor Inducing Gingersnap Cookie Recipe

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 tablespoons (or 1 stick) margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar (will also need extra sugar to roll cookie dough in)
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup molasses
2 egg whites

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt and cayenne pepper in small mixing bowl.  Set dry ingredients aside.

Then blend margarine in large mixing bowl.  Stir in brown sugar and granulated sugar slowly.  Add the molasses, then the egg whites.  Finally, add the dry ingredients to your mix.
