Gingersnaps

LilySoft and Chewy Gingersnaps - our favorite recipe for the classic cookie filled with molasses, ginger and cinnamon!!

Hey, it’s me Lily again!!

Did you look at the Christmas Pancakes I shared this week?? I hope so, because they are awesome and I think your kids will love them!! I have another recipe to share that I think your whole family will love. They are soft and chewy Gingersnaps. My dad is 100% obsessed with these cookies, and so am I. They are great to eat all year long, especially in December, and I think they’d be great for Santa on Christmas Eve too. They have molasses and cinnamon and ginger, and if you love those ingredients, I really think you should try these. My dad thinks we should make these every week!

I know we have a lot of cookie recipes here on the site, but these are classic for December. There is nothing better than enjoying a delicious warm cookie with a cold glass of milk. 😀

Here is what you’ll need to make these:

Gingersnaps
 
Serves: 2 dozen
Ingredients
  • ¾ cup shortening
  • 1 cup plus plus 2 TB sugar, divided
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 2 cups flour

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  3. In a another bowl add flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture.
  5. Shape into balls and roll in remaining sugar. Place on greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes and ENJOY!
