Mama’s Spicy Ginger Crinkle Cookies

These spicy ginger cookies are made with molasses and ginger.  The dough is rolled into a ball, rolled in sugar and then baked.  You get a delicious spicy cookie with a beautifully crackled sugary top.

My husband is a fan of odd, at least in my opinion, strong flavored cookies like;  molasses, agave,  butterscotch, caramel, ginger, and cinnamon.  He also likes chewy cookies, which is easy to do with chocolate chip or peanut butter, but ginger snaps??  He asked me to make a ginger snap without the snap, so this is what I came up with.  I definitely met his approval with this spicy gem.  They turned out chewy and delicious, and made my kitchen smell spicy and sweet.

If you like them crispier, bake them a little longer.

Ingredients for Spicy Ginger Crinkle Cookies:

3/4 cup shortening

1 cup packed pure cane brown sugar

1 egg

1/4 cup fancy molasses

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground allspice or cloves

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 cup pure cane granulated sugar

Instructions for Spicy Ginger Crinkle Cookies:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl; beat shortening with brown sugar until fluffy.  Then, beat in egg, molasses, and vanilla until smooth.  In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, and salt; stir into molasses mixture a little at a time.

Roll dough into balls (about a tablespoon per ball).  Roll in granulated sugar to coat and place about 2 inches apart on parchment paper-lined or greased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees F for about 9-11 minutes or until tops are crackled on top.  Then, cool on a cooling rack.  Enjoy!

This recipe makes about 46 delicious, spicy ginger cookies.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
