    Ennoia's Note:

    This is a fantastic cookie recipe that I found in the LCBO Holiday 2003 Food & Drink magazine. I've been making these cookies for a few years now, but I've had a lot of requests for the recipe recently! I hope you enjoy them too!

    Serves: 3

    Yield:

    dozen c ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
    2. 2
      Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together butter and sugar for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and molasses.
    4. 4
      Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and baking soda. Stir into batter. Stir in crystallized ginger. The batter will be thick. Roll into 1-inch (2.5cm) balls. Place granulated sugar on a plate. Dip balls into sugar. Place sugar-side up on cookie sheet about 3 inches (8cm) apart, as the cookies tend to spread when baking. Keep dough refrigerated between batches.
    5. 5
      Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cracked on top, slightly firm to the touch and a golden colour. They will soften and crisp up as they cool. Cool on wire racks.

      This recipe was pretty good, and fairly easy as well. I underbaked my cookies by 2 minutes and they were perfectly chewy, even a week later! my only complaint is the crystallized ginger. I felt this made them too "gingery", almost soap tasting. Next time i make this recipe i will omit the crystallized ginger and only use the powdered ginger. this is just my personal preference though, everyone else who tasted the cookies thought they were the best gingersnaps ever! :)

      excellent. I cut sugar in half, used whole wheat flour and still delicious!

      OMG, these are so good. We really enjoyed this treat, they were perfection, sweet and spicy. These tasty cookies were quick and really easy to make. The end result is out of this world good. I am wishing that I would have made another batch, maybe tomorrow. Made exactly as written, I wouldn't change a thing. The cookies were crisp yet chewy. The children ate them up just as quickly as the adults did. Kudos on your wonderful recipe and for making me look like a star. Made for Sweet Dreams 2013.
