1 cookie = 1 serving for purposes of calculating nutrition info. These cookies are a delightful, snappy ginger cookie for a special treat!
1 1/3 cup self-rising flour
1 c. sugar
2 t. ground ginger
2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 stick unsalted butter
1/4 c. molasses
1 extra-large egg
Gently melt the molasses and butter together.
Pour melted butter and molasses onto dry ingredients and stir with a spoon until mixed.
Lightly beat egg.
Add egg to cookie dough and mix well.
(If dough is gooey, chill for 1-2 hours.)
Scoop small balls of dough onto parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
(I use a melon baller for a nice size cookie.)
Lightly press but do not flatten the balls.
Bake 12-15 minutes at 350F.
Cookies will puff up while cooking. Toward the end of their baking time, they will deflate. They are done a moment or two after deflating.
Number of Servings: 75

Wow!!! This is the recipe I've been looking for. I love ginger snaps, and those exeeded my expectations. They are way too easy to make, this might be a problem for me... moderation, moderation... Thank you for sharing this! I didn't have ground ginger, so I used a big chunk of fresh instead. - 8/3/09
