Ginger Crinkles


My sister in law introduced me to these cookies. They are such a yummy holiday treat! This is a great recipe for a holiday cookie exchange or neighborhood treat deliveries, . You can also make them for no reason. I totally give you permission. 


Cream together:

  • 2 sticks butter (room temperature)
  • 1  1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • 1 egg
  • 1 teapsoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon molassses
  • 2  1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • shape dough into balls (I use this scoop) and roll in a small bowl of sugar for a light sugar dusting. 

Bake 350 degrees.

Check after 7 mins. Remove from oven as soon as the tops start to crack and the bottoms are a golden brown, The key with these is to under cook them slightly and allow the dough to continue to cook on the hot baking sheet. Cool for a minute or so. Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack. Get ready to be asked for the recipe and share liberally!
