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!

  3. yummy
    I love clicking over to blogs and finding -- FOOD!!!

  4. Earl, I love big cookies, too! Lynn, these look delicious! Spicy cookies are a favorite around here. I know my husband would love these!

  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 :)

  6. Oh my those look scrumptious. Very fall. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I like your photo, Lynn, and these cookies look great. Have a good wknd!

  8. Yum...thanks for hte recipe. :-)

  9. I love ginger cookies, gongerbread, etc. I am going to try these. I saw these at Lorraine's blog, too, the wonderful care package post with chicken pot pie. xo

  10. Great time a day I could eat a dozen!...Earl save me some!

  11. My Mama loves a good ginger cookie! Thanks for the recipe!
    hugs, Linda

  12. Lynn,
    The sticky buns are beautiful and I think bacon would be the perfect addition!
    These cookies are beautiful. Love a crunchewy cookie. Gonna pin it.

  13. Thye look fabulous and must smell sooo good! Lorraine always has good recipes. I will make them before my next real estate open house in a couple of weeks in case I can entire a potentila buyer that!

  14. i adore ginger snaps and look forward to making these.
    thank you for the recipe!

  15. I saw those on Lorraine's post with the turkey pot pie. I want to make them and serve them with a dip. The cookies sure make Earl look little!!

  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!

  18. Ginger cookies are so good and I rarely make them. Cute post!

  19. Yum...ginger cookies are my favorite. :)

  20. Your ginger cookies sound ah-mazing! All of these autumn recipes are really getting to me! I can wait to do a little casual baking as Thanksgiving isn't too far away.

  22. Hi Lynnie! Oh, these look so cook and I see they are Earl approved.

    Shelia ;)
