Everyone in my family loves these. Dad keeps asking me to make them and send them over. Great ginger and molasses flavour.

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. Combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl beat butter till soft, gradually add sugar.
  4. Beat in egg and molasses.
  5. Stir in flour mixture.
  6. Roll into balls, then roll in sugar.
  7. Bake 10- 12 minutes.
  8. Cooking time depends on the size of cookie.
  9. I have small children so I make them quite small and the baking time decreases.
  10. The yield is not correct- It depends on the size of the cookie- I do not know the amount it will make?

These soft gingersnaps are exactly the cookie I have been looking for! They're very easy to make, and the dough keeps well in the fridge for a day or so if you don't want to make the whole batch at once. I baked them (one-inch balls) for exactly 10 minutes -- they look like they're not done when you take them off the pan, but they firm up quickly so, if you want a soft cookie, don't bake them any longer. Absolutely delicious, LeeAnn!

These were so good, and smelled so delicious while baking, I couldn't wait for the first batch to cool to try one. Was really wonderful!!
