18 servings
Vegetable oil cooking spray
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup margarine
6 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 teaspoons ginger
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup cake flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Spray lightly with vegetable oil cooking spray and set aside. Cream together sugar and the margarine. Blend in corn syrup, ginger and almond extract. Stir in flour.
Drop approximately 2 tablespoons mixture onto parchment paper. With fingers, press down into a 3-inch diameter circle. Work with only 2-4 cookies at a time, allowing space for cookies to double in diameter. Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool approximately 1 minute. Carefully peel cookie from parchment paper using a spatula and drape facedown over an inverted styrofoam coffee cup. Let cool completely. Store in airtight containers. To serve, fill with fresh fruit, frozen yogurt or low-fat pudding mixture.
