Yummmm, there's just something festive & cozy about gingersnaps... & Abbey says that they'll make your house smell wonderful! Thanks for sharing, Abbey :)

This recipe makes about 3 dozen of these delicious little cookies.

The Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup margarine
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 white sugar for decoration

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 

In a medium bowl, cream together margarine & 1 cup white sugar until smooth. Beat in egg & molasses until well-blended. 

Combine flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda & salt. Stir into molasses mixture to form a dough.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls & roll the balls in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 8-10 mins. Allow cookies to cool for at least 5 mins before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
