Every year around Christmas I love baking these delicious cookies! There's nothing quite like curling up in a blanket with a cup of coffee and a couple gingersnaps, especially on a cold winter's night.


This recipe is extremely easy to make. First, mix your wet ingredients together (butter, sugar, egg, molasses) and in a separate bowl combine your dry ingredients (flour, ginger, baking soda, and salt). Then slowly add your dry ingredients into your wet mixture and stir. After this, roll dough into approximately 1 inch balls, place on a baking sheet, and flatten with a fork. For a little extra sweetness sprinkle with white sugar and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. 

Disclaimer: these cookies are extremely addictive so bake at your own risk! ;) Enjoy!
