These are my kinda cookie. The flavor of ginger, crunchy on the edge and soft and sweet in the middle. A keeper for sure.
Grandma Hall's gingersnaps
1 1/4 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
3/8 cup of molasses ( a little over 1/4 cup)
Mix this in your mixer. Then add the flour mixture
In another bowl add the dry ingredients and whisk this together then add to the wet mixture:
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon salt
extra sugar for rolling the cookie balls
I used my cookie scoop ( it holds 2 Tablespoons) and got 41 "3" inch cookies. Form the dough into a ball and roll in sugar and bake at 350 degrees. I baked mine for 12 minutes but that will depend on how large you make your cookies.
Just looking at these cookies makes me want one. I love cookies......................Happy baking friends, hope you enjoy Andi
