Why is this Ginger Cookies Recipe easy? Because I made it with stuff I had on hand, in no time flat!
See…I was in a real hurry. The track team needed cookies, they were leaving in an hour. I started mixing up the ingredients for Gingersnaps, and broke a cardinal rule of cooking….
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE INGREDIENTS BEFORE YOU START MIXING!!
Half of the ingredients are spinning around the mixer, I reach for the molasses…. and the jar is almost empty.
Well…I had no time to go to the store, and I hate waste, what could I do?
Press on, change things up, make it work.
I combined the regular Gingersnap Recipe with a Snickerdoodle concept.
These cookies came out better than expected, much better tasting than standard Gingersnaps. They are sweet, with a spicy taste, and a brown sugar coating.
The Track team wiped them out in no time… luckily, I wrote the recipe down so I could make more!
Ginger Cookies Recipe Easy
Ginger Cookie Dough Freezes Well
The Dough for Ginger Snickerdoodles will freeze well. You can put the dough into a freezer container, or mold the cookies, freeze them on a cookie sheet, then freeze the dough balls.
Thaw them before rolling in Brown Sugar.
