Ginger Krinkles

Jill Sines


I got this recipe from my mother. I love soft molasses/ginger cookies and these are the best I've tasted yet!

Please note that the serving size says "makes 48, supposedly" That is probably true if you stick with the 1-inch balls of dough, but I prefer a cookie that is a bit bigger.
