While Ginger isn't everyone's cup 'o tea, I can tell you this. Ginger is one of the top tastes people prefer during the Christmas holiday, thus I give you Ginger Snaps. Prep time is only 20 minutes, cooking time 50 minutes.

1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp ginger
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2/3 cup oil
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp baking soda, dissolved in water
1 egg
2 1/2 cup flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients, except flour, together and mix well.
  3. Slowly mix in flour, blending as you add.
  4. Roll dough into balls. Use the Pampered Chef small scoop for consistency.
  5. Rolls balls in sugar.
  6. Bake on bottom rack of oven until crinkly, then move to the top rack of oven. (Usually 5-10 minutes per rack)
  7. Depending on how hard or soft you like your cookies, baking takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes total.

Note: For more of a ginger taste, follow the recipe as shown. For more cinnamon taste, swap the amounts on the spices. Or add equal amounts (2 Tablespoons) of both for a more balanced cookie.
