How to Make Gingerdoodle Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, shortening, molasses and egg. Stir in flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Set bowl aside.
  3. In another large bowl, beat together the sugar, butter and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until well mixed. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Set bowl aside.
  4. In a small bowl, mix together the 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon; set bowl aside.
  5. For each cookie, take 1 level tablespoon of Gingersnap cookie dough and a heaping teaspoon of Snickerdoodle cookie dough. Roll the two doughs together into a ball, creating a marbled effect with the mixed doughs. Roll each dough ball in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until thoroughly covered on all sides. Place on lined cookie sheets 2 inches apart.
  6. Place baking sheets in oven and bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Transfer cookies to rack to cool completely.
