Gingersnaps


I have had a couple of people ask me for my gingersnap recipe lately. I want to say that I received this recipe 21 years ago from my neighbor, Kris Tibbs. It is so delicious! I really hesitate to call them "snaps" because they are really more like "chews". Anyhow, here it is, enjoy!


You need:
2 c. flour
1/4 t. salt
1 t. each of cinnamon, cloves, ginger
2 t. baking soda
1 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
1 egg
1/4 c. molasses


In one bowl, mix the flour, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, soda. Set aside.

In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Then add the egg and molasses. Add the dry mixture just until mixed.

Roll into balls and dip them into sugar. (I use raw sugar, but granulated sugar works also.)

Bake for about 9-11 minutes at 350 degrees.

Yummy, I will have to give this a try. Looks like I might have most of the stuff to make it.
