Gingersnaps: Proving that Gingers DO have souls.

Gingersnaps are like the more eccentric cousin in the molasses cookie family. The one that seems to get away with things your own parents wouldn’t allow. They have that added little bite that paired with a glass of milk and a good book make a perfect afternoon.

These cookies are made a bit smaller... better take two!


  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Cream together the margarine, sugar, and molasses
  2. Beat in the egg
  3. Sift together dry ingredients, and then combine together.
  4. Chill for 1 hour or until dough is fairly stiff
  5. Roll dough into small balls, and then roll the balls in granulated sugar
  6. Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes.
