Ginger Snaps - Just like mom made!

This is my mother’s ginger snap recipe and I hold it near to my heart. They are simple and delicious holiday cookies with a bit of spice. I hope you enjoy them as much as my family does!

Ingredients for Ginger Snaps

3/4 cup soft lard (tenderflake)
3/4 cup soft margarine
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup molasses
1 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 cup flour
4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ginger
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cloves

Person holding coffee with cookie on table.

Instructions

Beat together the lard, sugar, salt, and baking soda.

Beat in the egg, then the molasses.

Add the flour and spices, beating to make a smooth, fairly stiff dough.

Chill dough well (1 hour).

Roll into balls – approx. 1 good tsp then dip into sugar or sprinkles.

Bake 7-9 minutes. Watch as they burn easily – once they crack they’re done!
