Soft Ginger Snap Cookies – Per Sarah’s Request

Here’s the recipe that I used this year – super yummy! I hope you enjoy them as much as we have

Blend together:

3/4 cup shortening

1/4 cup molasses

1 cup sugar

Stir in:

1 beaten egg

Mix together in a separate bowl:

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon ground ginger

Then stir the dry mixture into the batter. Roll dough into walnut-size balls and then roll them in sugar. Put on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack as soon as they come out of the oven.

  1. Thank you again for the recipe! They really ARE as awesome as you said!! I struggled a little as they took longer than the recipe called for (probably due to baking them on stoneware). My first batch was a bit undercooked, my second was WAY over-cooked (because I forgot about them, but they were SUPER YUMMY dipped in coffee). After that, they were perfect!! They were a big hit at the family Christmas parties!! Thanks for sharing!

    • Glad most of them turned out OK! and that you enjoyed the recipe as much as I have…we ended up making another double batch so we would have cookies to set out for Santa, and they are almost gone again lol. Good thing it’s an easy recipe so I can make some more in the future.
