Ginger Snaps

Updated: Aug 1, 2023

These Ginger Snaps are the ultimate winter comfort cookie with their warm flavor... Another of my Grandmother's recipes.

Ginger Snaps Recipe

3/4 cup lard

1 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup molasses, fancy

1 egg

2 1/4 cup flour, All-Purpose

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ginger

1 tsp. cloves

2 tsp. baking soda

Dipping sugar in a dish

1/3 cup white sugar

Cream lard with sugar and molasses. Add in the egg and stir in the rest until combined. The dough will be very thick. Once combined use a 3 tbsp. sized cookie scoop to make equal size balls. Roll each ball until smooth and round. Gently dip and press to flatten into the sugar in a dish. Place sugared, pressed cookie on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 9 minutes or longer if you like crunchy cookies.

Makes 30 cookies
