Gingersnaps

This recipe comes from Allrecipes.  I’ve had store-bought Gingersnaps before and never liked them.  One night my husband was looking for a snack and mentioned Gingersnaps.  So, I poked around and found this recipe.  It’s definitely a winner!

Here’s what you’ll need:

3/4 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup white sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In medium bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar until smooth; beat in egg and molasses until well blended.

Sift flour; combine flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.  Stir together and sift everything again.

Blend into molasses mixture to form a dough.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll in white sugar.  I have a really cool cookie scoop that I use; that way all the cookies are of uniform size!

Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheet; bake for 8-10 minutes.  The cookies will look cracked; that’s how you know they’re done!

Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing to cooling racks.

Store in covered container.  Yum!  I discovered that I love Gingersnaps…homemade ones, that is!
