Momma’s Classic Gingersnaps

September 28, 2017

Gingersnaps are one of my hubby’s favourite cookies. He grew up having these all year round, but I on the other hand grew up only having these babies around Christmas time. I broke my rule to make my hubby these cookies one evening when he was working extremely late (on a Saturday no less). My hubby came through the door covered in sawdust and completely exhausted. And I was very pleased that I could surprise him with a fresh cup of tea and a delicious gingersnap.

This recipe is the recipe my mom has made every Christmas that I can remember. It is one of those classic Christmas recipes in our house. I love to have gingersnaps with a hot cup of tea (to be fair I like a hot cup of tea with everything…). These cookies are really easy to make and a bursting with warm Fall flavours, which warm your stomach, which is just what you want when its getting colder and colder everyday.

Momma's Classic Gingersnaps

A classic recipe for the classic cookie!

  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cup flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Once light and fluffy add the egg and molasses. Once combined add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Use a small cookie scoop to shape your cookies so they are all the same size. Place the scoop of dough in your hands and shape into small balls. Roll in sugar and place on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack to allow to cool.
