These gingersnaps come handed down from a family friend to my mom to me. I swear, they taste too good to be true. The ultimate holiday staple- flavorful, chewy, sweet, and just crisp enough. Plus, the dough is honestly effortless to make. If you need a quick treat to gift or an extra addition to a dessert table, this recipe is for you! I hope you love it as much as we do.
3/4 c butter
1 c sugar
4 tbsp molasses
2 c flour
3 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
- Combine your wet ingredients in a stand mixer, whipping the butter and sugar first. Add the egg and molasses and combine until smooth.
- Combine flour, baking soda, and spices before adding them to your mixer. Mix just until combined.
- When scooped and rolled, your dough should form balls about the size of walnuts. Roll these balls in sugar and set on a cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Allow a few minutes to set before enjoying warm or storing for longer enjoyment.
