snap snap gingersnaps

Yea I made cookies all by myself yesterday.
They turned out a little stiff though because i cooked them too long.
Whatever. Dip them in some coffee and they're still good.
(or i suppose you could try to not cook them too long)



anyway, here's the recipe:

2 cups flour
1 Tbsp ground ginger
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
1/3 cup cinnamon & sugar

Mix 1st five ingredients and set aside. Beat shortening until creamy. Add sugar, then egg & molasses. Combine with 1st mixture. Roll dough into balls and roll in cinnamon & sugar. Bake at 350 for 10 min.


  1. Oh yummy!! You can make 'em for me anytime, even if you do cook them too long. :)

  2. Hey Cass those look mighty tatsy. If you need more practice, I would test a batch for you...
