Karl actually made these and we brought so over to my dad’s for supper and everyone loved them! I just love the chewy texture! Anyways, just try them, you ill see for yourself :)

Recipe Inspired from: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/grandmas-gingersnap-cookies/detail.aspx

  • Course: Dessert
  • Servings: 18
  • Prep. time: 15 min
  • Cook time: 10 min

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 Cup of sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon of powdered ginger
  • 2 Teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup of butter, room temperature
  • 1 Cup of white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup of molasses
  • 1/3 Cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of cloves

Cooking instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift the flour, ginger, baking soda, cloves and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Stir the mixture to blend evenly, and sift a second time into another bowl.
  3. Place the butter into a mixing bowl and beat until creamy. Gradually beat in the white and the brown sugar. Beat in the egg, and dark molasses. Sift 1/3 of the flour mixture into the butter mixture; stir to thoroughly blend. Sift in the remaining flour mixture, and mix together until a soft dough forms. Pinch off small amounts of dough and roll into 1 inch diameter balls between your hands. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the tops are rounded and slightly cracked, about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Store in an air tight container.

    Hi there! These look great, but I live abroad and don’t have access to molasses, any ideas for a substitute? Thanks!

    I would try to put 3/4 cup of firmly packed brown sugar :) it might change the taste a bit though! Let me know how they turn out :)

    Hi sorry but I went to make these and there are some inconsistencies with the ingredients/directions! You say to add salt but you didn’t put how much salt you needed. Also you say “shortening” when we’re using butter. Also there isn’t anything about brown sugar in the directions! It’s only in the ingredients column.

    I will change it now:)
