Ginger Snaps

I’m taking part in a Christmas Baking Exchange this year with some other wives and some mom’s (we just get so domestic in those seasons of life!). I’m really excited about it and this recipe is the one I am using for my choice contribution. It’s a great recipe, easy to do, and practically fool proof!

Rating: I give these a 5 (1 being "I'll never bake them again" and 5 being "They are now one of my favorites")

2/3 cup Butter
1 cup Sugar
1/4 cup Molasses (I always add a little more!)
1 Egg
2 tsp Baking Soda
2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp Cloves
1/2 tsp Ginger
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon

Mix all ingredients well. Roll into little balls and then roll them in sugar. Bake in 350 degree oven 10-12 minutes. And then Simply enjoy!

Tip: These cookies freeze great and are also great to do ginger bread men with!

Have any good ideas, or substitutes for this....share them, leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!!


  1. Ginger cookies are my favorites. (shhh...don't tell the chocolate chips.) I'm putting these on my list of cookies to try. I never met a gingersnap I didn't like. :)

  2. I will have to try these! I love gingersnaps and buy them a lot during the holiday season. Thanks for the great recipe!


Thanks for your comments and feedback! I enjoy reading each one :)
