Traditionally, these cookies were thin and crisp and were used to make wishes come true. It was thought that if you placed a cookie in the palm of your hand and snapped it with gentle pressure from the heel of your other hand, you would know that your wish would come true if the cookie broke into no more than three pieces.
1. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Mix in the beaten egg and molasses.
2. Combine the remaining dry ingredients. Add to the butter mixture and blend together.
3. Form into rolls and refrigerate until the dough is chilled through. ( at least 2 hours.).
4. Slice thinly and bake at 375’ F about 10 min. ( Be careful as the cookies bake quickly and can burn easily). If you prefer the dough can be rolled out and cut into shapes.
These cookies more than double in size when baked. They are easier to remove from the pan if you use parchment paper.
December 29 For Christmas, I got a “Cookie a Week” cookbook. I generally stick with the chocolate chip variety (if it’s not chocolate, why bother?), but this is a great opportunity for me to branch out and try some new stuff—and perhaps see if this whole bakery thing is for me. Tonight’s recipe was gingersnaps. Here, you’ll see the finished product, the pre-cooked product, my hand pulling a ball of dough from it ginger sugar bath, and the mixing bowl. These were delish! I know they’re supposed to be a little crisp (hence the “snap”) but I like my cookies chewy, so I didn’t cook them too long. Instead of chocolate chips mixing things up, these have the heat of ginger (fresh and ground)—they make you feel all warm and cozy as you eat them, and then there’s a flash of spice on your tongue that warms you up once you’re finished. I’m going to send some home to Mom since today’s her birthday and when we were little, she always used to buy orange boxes of gingersnaps (Sweetzel's Spiced Wafers). I hope these are better!
