When I want a sweet treat with a little crunch and warm flavors, I make my Ginger Snap Cookie Recipe From Scratch. The soft center and spicy taste fills my sweet craving every time.
This cookie recipe is easy to make and full of flavor. AND cookies from scratch are not that hard to make. Let me show you how…
Ginger Snap Cookie Recipe From Scratch
3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 fresh egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix thoroughly in a stand mixer using a paddle attachment: shortening, brown sugar, egg and molasses until smooth and combined.
Blend in remaining ingredients, except granulated sugar.
Cover; chill 1 hour.
Heat oven to 375*. Shape dough by rounded teaspoons into balls.
Dip tops into granulated sugar.
Place balls sugar side up, 3 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or just until set.
Serve warm with a glass of cold milk, cup of hot tea or any drink of your choice.
