Ginger Crinkles
Serves: 3 dozen
 
Ingredients
  • ⅔ cup vegetable oil (I replaced with coconut oil for the health benefits and it worked!)

  • 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

  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.
