Ginger Crinkles

So autumn... So yummy!
A recipe I got from a friend
(who got it from a friend, who got it from her grandmother)
back in the early 80's. Crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.
It has been a favorite at our house all these years.

Ginger Crinkles


2 cups flour
3 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 1/3 cups sugar, divided
1 egg, slightly beaten
¾ cup shortening
¼ cup light molasses

Combine 1 cup sugar with shortening. Add molasses and egg. Combine with dry ingredients. Roll into 1” balls and dip in the remaining 1/3 cup sugar. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350.

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul.
Horatio Spafford

I just ordered the Fanny Farmer baking book. I had it many years ago and it had the best gingersnaps recipe in it. I can't wait to make them again. Perhaps I will do a comparison of your ginger crinkles.

Thank you for this recipe. Ginger cookies are a favorite of mine but I've never actully made any myself. These will make the house smell wonderful.
I am also thankful for sight. I spent much of my life being "eyes" for mother and I always struggled with trying to express the magnitude of the beauty in which we live.

Mmmmm....Ginger Cookies, my favorite. I made some last week for a friend. Apparently, they liked them. Their 16 year old son gave me the biggest hug (something he never does!!!). Guess I will have to make more... Our recipes are quite similar. Thanks for sharing...

I, too, am grateful for my sight. So much of what brings me joy relies on sight...nature, art, my beloveds' faces. Last year, I developed a condition where I was seeing shadows and double images. Thankfully, it eventually cleared, but it reinforced how much I rely on clear vision. Thanks be to God for allowing me to see...

I'll have to try these very soon! Thankful for the many blessings of my life, for the freedom this country is built on and for God's word to direct us.

So very grateful for my vision...my oldest son lost the vision in one eye following a horrible car accident in 1995. I remember his fear (and mine) while we waited to see how his other eye would heal. Praise God the other eye was saved. We were just talking the other day about how glad he was that he could "see" his sweet Penelope.

Sight is wonderful to acknowledge and be thankful for a blessing for those of us that see well that could easily be overlooked. The cookies look wonderful thanks for sharing ~Blessings Heather :D

I love ginger cookies! I have my german grandmother's recipe which is similar to yours. She called them Sugar and Spice cookies, but my girls and I have always called them 'Man Catchers!' You can guess the reason!

Thank you for sharing you cookie recipe; I will make them tomorrow for my husband to enjoy while I go for a visit to see our grandsons. Thank you also for sharing the 30 Days of Thanksgiving. I have much to be thankful for, and it will be nice to put a few in writing. Your post on "Wait" is beautiful; it is interesting that God prompted me to write a post on it, and knowing his timing is perfect, I continue to trust in Him, even for what I "wait" for. He knows my heart.
With joy,
