On the 12th Day

We made some YUMMY Gingersnaps!

My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me. These ACTUALLY stay soft and the dough is REALLY good!
Hope you enjoy!


1 1/2 c shortening
2 c sugar
1/2 c molasses
2 eggs
4 tsp baking soda
4 c flour
1 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp vinegar

Cream shortening & sugar. Add molasses & eggs, beat well. Do the rest & mix well, chill, form into balls & roll in sugar, bake 350 for 8 to 10 minutes, don't overbake, I do 9 minutes.

This kind of makes a big recipe, so you can bake & freeze or just freeze the dough for later.
