The taste of ginger reminds me of the holidays when pumpkin spice lattes come out and baked goods smell of warm flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. While elaborate desserts are often fun to prepare for the holidays, a simple cookie recipe is often what time calls for when you are going to have guests over and there are many other tasks to complete. A simple cookie recipe is the easiest way to welcome in the holiday cheer!

This recipe is quick and easy but most of all absolutlely delicious!!


2 1/4 cups of flour

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup of room temperature butter

1 cup of sugar

1 egg

1 tablespoon water

1/4 cup molasses

1 cup of sugar (for the cookie to be rolled in)


Set the oven for 350 degrees.

Sift flour, ginger, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and salt in a medium size bowl.

In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar until well mixed. Add in the egg, water and molasses until colors become one. Slowly add the dry ingredients from the medium bowl into the mixer. Once all the ingredients are mixed, take the 1 cup of sugar and place it on a plate or in a bowl.

With your hands, form the dough into small round balls and then roll it in the sugar, covering all sides with the sugar. Place the rolled dough onto an ungreased baking sheet with at least 2 inches between the next cookie. Gently press on the tops of each cookie before placing it into the oven.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until the top of the cookie begins to look browned. Take cookies off the baking sheet and place on a wire wrack to cool. Once cool, serve with milk, ice cream or glaze the cookie with your favorite icing!
