Ginger Softies

Just a quick post to share a favorite Christmas cookie recipe. Although, I think they’re far too good to only make at Christmas! Hope you enjoy these ginger softies, as I fondly call them :)

Ginger Softies

  • 2 c. sugar + extra for rolling cookies in
  • 1 1/2 c. softened butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. molasses
  • 4 1/2 c. flour
  • 4 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  1. Cream together sugar, softened butter, eggs, and molasses. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl sift flour, baking soda, ginger, cloves, and salt.
  3. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture. Mix until just combined.
  4. Chill dough for about 30 minutes, or until firm.
  5. Shape into 1 inch balls and roll in sugar to coat. Place on greased sheet pans about 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 8-12 minutes, or until set. Be careful not to bake these too long! You’ll want to pull them out when they start to crack and still have some moisture on the top.
  7. Cool on wire racks and ENJOY!

These cookies could make a perfect snack for a certain white bearded jolly man :)
