Gingersnaps III

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

A small and tender spice cookie, this cookie is an excellent tea time treat.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Cream together shortening and sugar. Mix in molasses and egg. Stir in sifted flour, salt, soda, cinnamon, clove, and ginger. Dough will be soft and a little sticky.
  • Mold into walnut-sized balls, and roll in sugar. Place on greased cookie sheets.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 7 to 8 minutes. Baking them longer will make them less soft, but still chewy.
