Ginger Crinkle Cookies

I am always so impressed by the talent and creativity that emerges during the Christmas month, be it crafts, cooking or baking. I am particularly impressed by the vast array of cookies that are made for this holiday. Through a fellow blogger I linked to a food blog event called Eat Christmas Cookies Season 2. This great event allows bloggers to submit their christmas cookie recipes and be compiled all together for all of us to be wowed and inspired. You can check out the round up page for this awesome compilation of cookies.

I have been wanting to make many cookie recipes since the 1st of December, but somehow it kept being put off. One weekend a bunch of us girls got together for a weekend entitled "baking and boozing". It is more innocent than it sounds. We were able to cook up a storm that day with brownies, cookies, shortbread, oatmeal-raspberry bars etc.. Since then I have had the bug to cook more. So today being my day off I was determined to get a few things baked. The first cookie I baked were these simple and delicious Ginger Crinkle Cookies that I got from a coworker.


2/3 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup molasses
2 cups sifted flour
2 tsp bakingsoda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 cup sugar for dipping

Blend oil and sugar thoroughly. Add egg and beat well. Add molasses. Add dry ingredients. Form in balls and dip in sugar. Place on ungreased cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Do not flatten before baking.

Oh yeah, a bunch of ladies baking and boozing is innocent? :) You were probably one drink away from having flour and sugar fights.

Nice job on the ginger cookies. I love anything with molasses, and these have a great crunch to them. Happy holidays!
