Ginger Crinkles
Serves: 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup vegetable oil (I replaced with coconut oil for the health benefits and it worked!)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1¾ cups flour
  • 1½ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (I add a bit more)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • sugar for rolling
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, whisk oil with sugar, egg and molasses
  3. In a separate bowl, mix flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  4. Stir into the molasses mixture to form moist dough.
  5. Shape into 1" (or so) balls with your hands, roll in sugar and place on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees until flat, cracked and browned; about 12 minutes.

  1. Thank you for the concise summary of your recipes! Picture of product followed by recipes. When I’m searching for something to bake I don’t need to look at twenty photos …keep scrolling and scrolling ….before I get to the recipe. Thanks for making my search for great recipes easy.

  2. They aren’t as thick but I would just try making them bigger and cooking a bit longer. I always take them out of the oven when they are a bit underdone and they have a great texture.

  3. I have been searching for a recipe that tastes like Starbucks. Ginger molasses cookies. Do you know if these are similar at all?

    • Simply Frugal says:

      I’d have to say that these are less “molassessy” tasting then the Starbucks cookies. Hope that helps a bit!

  4. I can vouch for these cookies!! I use the same recipe and it is fantastic.everyone always wants the recipe.
