Ginger Snaps!


So I know I have not posted anything on here since July, but I thought I would post this recipe for Ginger Snap cookies. They were so delicious. Plus, I got to make them with my friends which was super awesome! I hope you all enjoy it!


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 granulated sugar


  • Combine brown sugar, shortening, molasses, and egg
  • mix in flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt. Mix spices into flour so they don’t clump in the liquid.
  • Cover refrigerate for about an hour. This is not necessary if the egg is cold enough!
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Shape dough into balls and place about 3 inches a part on a lightly greased cookie sheet
  • Bake about 9 1/2 minutes, let cool for 3 minutes before transferring to rack.

We also melted white chocolate chips and dipped the cookies into it. It really added a nice touch to them. This is a great recipe for fall and winter. I hope you all enjoy it!
