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. Addd 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 found this website online and was wondering have anyone else heard of these and if so do they really work???

  • I'm sure after eating them, you'll eventually go into labor. Just like everyone eventually goes into labor. lol

    Looking at the ingredients, these cookies look like they're based on the 'spicy food' theory, which holds no water.

    I mean, I definitely wouldn't eat anything that came labeled 'once cooled, eat as many as you can possibly stomach'. Sounds like a recipe for heartburn, indigestion, or throwing up. Maybe all three.

  • nothing works until your body and baby are ready to come out. trust me, i tried just about every natural way to induce and my second child didn't want to come out until the day i turned 42 weeks. crazy!
