Granny's Gingersnaps


These yummy cookies are an winter favorite of mine and yet another recipe from Granny.  To make these tasty gingersnaps, you will need:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the sugar, flour, salt, and baking soda in a large bowl.  Stir in the spices.

Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles large crumbs.

Stir in the molasses and egg.

Form into one inch balls and place on an unlined, ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Remove from the sheet immediately.

The cookies are soft right out of the oven, but firm up as they cool.  So yummy!
