RE: Ginger Cookies

Yeah, yeah, so I posted these at Thanksgiving.  They were delicious.  My husband made them again because they are his very favorite cookies.  They are again, delicious.  Welcome to the holidays!!  The first cookies of the season are here!!!  More to come…

Ginger Cookies | doomthings


  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups sugar (for rolling cookies in)


  1. Whip butter and the 2 cups of sugar together until creamy.
  2. In a separate bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients.
  3. Add eggs, molasses, and grated ginger to butter mix until well combined.
  4. Add flour mix in small batches until well combined.
  5. Roll into balls and roll in sugar.
  6. Bake on a parchment-lined sheet for 8 – 10 minutes.  Do not overbake!

*Note:  normally I don’t use Crisco, but I think using it in place of butter would make them a bit fluffier.  Try it!
