These cookies are chewy, delicious and easy to make. They stay fresh for quite a long time and also aren't too sweet. This recipe does not double well.
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together using a hand mixer. Add other wet ingredients and mix.
- Add dry ingredients and mix. Dough should be easy to handle and not sticky. Add a little more flour if necessary. The dough should NOT be dry.
- Shape dough into one inch balls and roll in white sugar.
- Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Remove immediately from cookie sheet onto cooling rack. Enjoy!
I can't even begin to say what a PERFECT Gingersnap recipe this is!! I made them light on the molasses and slightly heavier on the spices and I have never tasted a better Gingersnap! These are so good I have to say they have beat out the most perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe I use and are now my #1 cookie recipe! One of the many sweets I made for Christmas I had to force myself to leave these so we could finish the other sweets that I knew wouldn't stay good as long. A week later and these cookies were just as good as the day I made them! Thank you so much and my husband is ever so grateful that I found a good Gingersnap recipe since only one grocery store that we've found makes decent ones and they are expensive there.
The cookies were pretty to look at but I found that the cookies left a bitter taste of molasses in my mouth for quite a while. I won't be making these again.
I made these for our soldier overseas. They packed well and he loved them! Thanks for sharing!
