Ginger Snap Cookies

I love Ginger Snap Cookies. My grandparents live across the country so it’s always a real treat to visit them. But while I was growing up, I was lucky enough to have neighbors that acted like my grandparents. We lived next to an older couple, Russ and Ida, and I would go over there often to read to them, play games, and of course, eat some tasty food! Ida always had a full cookie jar, and I especially loved her ginger snap cookies.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ¾ cup of shortening
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of molasses
  • 1/3 cup of cinnamon sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350° F.
  2. Sift your flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt into a large mixing bowl. Stir and beat the ingredients until they are creamy.
  3. In another bowl mix your shorting until it is creamy. Slowly add the sugar to the bowl, then the egg and molasses. Once everything is mixed together, combine both bowls.
  4. Roll the dough in golf-ball sized portions (with clean hands of course!) and set them on an ungreased baking sheet
  5. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes or until the tops are slightly cracked.
