I made this cookie because I happened to have all the ingredients on hand and needed a recipe which called for only one egg. I didn’t even know I liked gingersnaps until I tried this cookie! What a wonderful find!
Adapted from More from Magnolia
2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the oil and sugar for 2 minutes. Add the egg and molasses and beat well. Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes then cool complete on wire rack.
These cookies are delicious as is or topped with a powdered sugar icing.
