The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and yesterday felt time to start making some of our favorite cold weather treats. Here's my favorite gingersnap recipe.
We like our cookies chewy at our house, and these cookies will give you that great soft mouth feel with a little crunch, plus that little warmth of ginger. I promise you will be addicted.
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoon ginger
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup granulated or sanding sugar
Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger) and set aside.
Add the butter, brown sugar, molasses, and egg to a separate bowl, and beat with a mixer until smooth.
Add the dry ingredients while mixing on low until fully combined.
Chill the dough for about 20-30 minutes while you preheat the over to 325 degrees.
Form the dough into about 3/4" balls, flatten them slightly in the palm of your hands. Roll them in the granulated sugar and place them on a baking sheet. Leave enough space for them to spread out a bit.
Cook for 8-10 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
If you try them, please email me and let me know what you think. :)
