Ginger Crinkles Cookies

Do you ever glance at the 'you might also like' feature some folks have at the bottom of their posts? I sure do, I'd hate to miss something good and that's where I found these Ginger Crinkles Cookies that were originally posted in 2009. It's someone's Grandmom's recipe so I knew it had to be good:@)

Earl says: A cookie that's bigger than me!!! I'm in hog heaven!
Lorraine writes these are crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. I'd say that's a perfect description and would like to add, they are very nicely spiced too. You might think 1 tsp of cloves is a lot, but it's very good in these cookies. If you're fond of Ginger Snaps you'll love Ginger Crinkles!

Ginger Crinkles-from With A Grateful Prayer and Thankful Heart
2 C A/P flour
3 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 1/3 C sugar, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 C shortening
1/4 C molasses
  1. Combine shortening and 1 C sugar, mix well.
  2. Add egg and molasses, mix well.
  3. Add dry, mix until it comes together.
  4. Roll into 1" balls, roll in remaining 1/3 C sugar.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees, 8-10 minutes.

  1. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside is exactly how I like my cookies. And yes, I often click one of the "you might also like." It's great for posts you might have missed.

  2. I'd be right with Earl - grinning from ear to ear, if I was sitting with a plate of ginger cookies as big as I was! They look delicious, I'm such a sucker for cookies with crinkles!

  5. Happy you and Earl like them! Don't know if you noticed the link in the post(it was small print). These cookies were part of the meal I made with the Turkey Pot Pie. They are in the photo. The 'you might also like' changes each time the page is refreshed.

    Old recipes are usually very good. I think these bake to a perfectly pretty cookie with the best crinkles. Your photo is wonderful!
    Thanks for the link back :)

  16. I love the taste of ginger snaps but not the snap. I would probably like these since they are chewy on the inside.

  17. Made my mouth water! Love a chewy cookie too - maybe that's from being so old I'm afraid a hard cookie might break a tooth!
