The Best-Ever Ginger Crinkles Molasses Cookie Recipe
An Easy and Delicious Recipe For Ginger Crinkles
This recipe for ginger crinkles is definitely a favorite in my house. It is one which we associate with the holidays although there is nothing to keep you from devouring these cookies all year around.
It is an extremely easy recipe with all of the ingredients coming together in two bowls with a wooden spoon. You then shape the dough into small balls, roll them in sugar and place them on the pan. Nothing could be easier.
When the cookies are finished cooking, the result will be cookies that are cracked or crinkled on the top just like those shown in the wonderful photographs from Flickr on this page.
This is the perfect ginger crinkle recipe and was originally from a copy of a fantastic publication called . Maybe this is the recipe you have been searching for... Canadian Living magazine
The Best-Ever Ginger Crinkles Cookie Recipe - So easy to make that all you need is a bowl, a wooden spoon, your measuring cups and cookie trays. This recipe mak
2/3 cup Vegetable Oil
1-1/4 cup Granulated Sugar (separated into 1 cup and 1/4 cup)
1/4 cup Fancy Molasses
1-3/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
2 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
- In a bowl whisk the oil with 1 cup of the sugar, then whisk in egg until it is smooth and finally whisk in the fancy molasses. In another bowl mix together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Pour the wet mix onto the try mix and stir until you have a moist dough.
- Using a 1 tbsp measure if you prefer bigger cookies or a 1 tsp measure if you prefer smaller cookies measure out the dough. Roll the dough into balls and then roll the balls into the reserved 1/4 cup of sugar.
- Bake on greased pans in the middle of your oven set at 375 degrees.
- The recipe says to cook for 12 minutes. I prefer 8 to 10 minutes but it will depend upon how you like your cookies cooked. When they are cooked, they will be flattened, cracked and possibly a little bit browned although I prefer rescuing mine from the oven before they are browned.
- Let cool on racks.
Ginger Crinkles Will Make Your House Smell Like A Million Dollars!
Calphalon Utensils Wood Medium Spoon
A comfortable wooden spoon is the only mixer you need to make these easy Ginger Cookies! This one is a great quality spoon. It is thick and solid with a smooth finish. (Items like this spoon are great ones to keep in mind when you are shopping on Amazon because sometimes you just need to spend a few dollars more to earn the 'free shipping.' Some people I know keep a running list of little things they need or want and use it when they are shopping on line.)
Experiment with your Ginger Crinkles. They taste good slightly underdone OR slightly crispy!
