Gingerbread Crinkles

Gingerbread Crinkles

It's practically impossible to think of the holidays and not think of gingerbread! There's something about the spicy-sweet combo that begs you to curl up in front of a fire to wait for Santa, which is probably why chewy, soft molasses cookies are always a big hit.



  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter and 1 cup sugar and beat until fluffy.
  3. Beat in molasses and the egg until mixture is combined.
  4. Mix in ginger, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
  5. Gradually beat in flour, working one cup at a time.
  6. Shape dough into 1-inch balls by rolling small clumps between your palms.
  7. For mini cookies, make balls about half that size.
  8. Pour sanding sugar or granulated sugar into a small bowl.
  9. Roll each ball in the sugar until it is well-coated and place on a cookie sheet.
  10. Bake for 8-10 minutes, slightly less for mini cookies.

Yield: 4 to 5 dozen cookies
