i’m not a huge gingersnap person typically, but the chewy texture of these cookies is unreal. i sort of wish every single cookie i could ever bake would have this texture, please advise if you know how to achieve that.
this recipe is not my own, but i loved it so much i thought you needed to have it too!
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter, slightly softened
1/2 cup molasses
4 cups flour
1 tb baking soda
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup granulated sugar to roll the dough balls in
they also make the perfect cookies to leave out for santa :)
i might even try this recipe without the ginger and adding in chocolate chips, i’ll report back if i do!
