Jumpstart Your Labor Cookies

I have been hearing so much about these "Jumpstart Your Labor Cookies" that it has me curious. I have been reading up lots on Lactation cookies and those truly serve a purpose and help to boost milk supply. But what about these "Labor" cookies? 

The common thought is that certain spices such as cloves, cinnamon, & cayenne can actually get you into labor-if spice is your trigger. Every lady is different. I have read success stories and have read stories where these just do not work.

Hmmm. Never hurts to try! I will probably make a cleaner version using whole wheat or coconut flour and substitute the sugars for Stevia or Truvia, and nix the butter, using coconut oil instead.

Who doesn't like cookies??

Jump-Start Your Labor Cookies

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!
