Eggless GingerSnap Molasses Cookies …

Today marks day 7th of my Christmas bakes & treats….

These Gingersnaps are an all time family favorite. We love them for their crispiness, and the flavors of ginger and molasses.
I Prefer to bake these cookies, rather than buying ginger snaps.

This recipe is for soft, thick, and puffy gingersnap molasses cookies.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours, 35 minutes
Yield: around two dozen .

Ingredients

1 cup plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp clove powder
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 light brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses OR 1/4 cup dark brown sugar

Instructions

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together until well-blended and fluffy. Add the molasses and whisk again until smooth.

Add the flour mixture to the molasses mixture and mix gently until a dough forms.
Turn the dough out onto plastic wrap and fully wrap it.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place at least two inches apart on parchment paper or greased foil.

For chewier cookies, bake for 10-12 minutes. For crisper, bake for additional 3-5 mins .

      1. My BIL is allergic to eggs. I’d like to send him & family some Christmas cookies. I’ve done it in the past, of course, but this time he can actually enjoy them along with his family. Excellent, Shelly! Thank you! XOXO

  1. Eggless??? Why??? 😀 Well, if you don’t like eggs that much in your family, that’s good. It only means that more eggs for me. 😛 These cookies look absolutely wonderful!! Happy FF!
