I made these cookies along with Snickerdoodles for my husband when he was stationed OIF, in Kuwait. He rarely got many of them because boxes from home got passed around and went very quickly.

How to Make Molasses Ginger Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray; set aside.
  2. 2. In a large mixing bowl beat the margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, baking soda, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; beat until combined. Beat in egg and molasses. Beat in as much of the all-purpose and whole wheat flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. 3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Combine the granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Roll balls in sugar-cinnamon mixture.
  4. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 11 minutes or until set and tops are cracked. Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on a wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen.
  5. I roll them out and cut out gingerbread men. Truthfully I don't remember if they cracked on top or not. I've slept since I made them last.
