Cookie Jar Gingersnaps

I've been making these for 14 years and I can't even begin to imagine how many more times I will make these. These are DH's favorite cookie. He is seriously addicted to these. In fact, this is only half of what I baked on Thursday morning and I took this picture at 1 P.M. on the same day. I ALWAYS double the batch and have been known to quadruple it. These have been proven to put a twinkle in DH's eye ~ it's one of many ways of telling him that he is loved.



Cookie Jar Gingersnaps



3/4 C shortening

1 C sugar

1 egg

1/4 C molasses

2 C flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

additional sugar



*Cream the shortening and sugar.

*Add the egg and molasses.

*Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt

*Gradually add flour mixture and mix well

*Roll into small balls, roll in sugar and place on baking sheet

*Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes



Hope y'all like these as much as DH does!

I make some every simlar to these, and they are Dh's favorite as well. I could founder on them. The kids like them right out of the oven, but don't care for them after that. Weird children. But thats OK cause it leaves more for Buck and I.
Have a great day!

I have been meaning to tell you, go to countrygirls site and try the pecan muffins she posted. Those were the best muffins I have ever eaten! Wish I had one right now.

"DH" sure loves them but so does "DS", "DD", and "FIL". What's with those initials? I should make up a new set for teen daughters. "DD" for "darling Daddy", "DM" for "dear Momma", and BB for "bothersome brothers" =D
