I find myself attracted to recipes that mum didn’t make when we were kids, but I always wanted them as kids…no offence to mum, just now I get to try them myself…you know like those puffed wheat squares and gingersnap cookies…though I have yet to try those peanut butter marshmallow squares that were always at church potlucks. Anyhow, I found a great recipe for ginersnap cookies that are super yummy and really quick and easy to make.
Here’s the recipe…try them today. Makes about 4 dozen which is a bonus for the freezer.
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup butter
7/8 cups molasses (don’t skimp on this one)
2 tsp soda
4 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
Combine first 4 ingredients Blend
Roll into small balls
Dip into sugar
place on cookie sheet (I have come to LOVE baking paper)
bake for 8 minutes for chewy cookies in a 350 oven
Enjoy :) !
oh ya, pictured with the cookies is a ‘sugar spoon’ that we had made as a craft at MOPS last time. I made mine to match with my pottery in Canada as I do not have a sugar bowl here because of the army of ants that would soon overtake said bowl. I don’t anticipate the same problem in the tundra. over n out.
