holiday ginger snaps

My favorite cookies during the holiday season are my Mum's ginger snaps...(besides my Grandma's traditional Christmas cookies that we used to decorate as children). 

This year I had a few people at work to get small gifts for, so I decided to make them some ginger snaps too - with my own little twist. They are so delicious and really simple to make!


3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg, beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. each of ground cloves, ground ginger, and cinnamon


Directions // 
Cream the butter and sugar
Add molasses and egg
Mix all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl
Add them to the creamed mixture
Roll batter into small balls 
Roll the balls in sugar to coat
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 mins 

My twist // I melted down some white chocolate chips and dipped about half of the cookies in to coat in white chocolate! 



Important note - this recipe made quite a bit more than 17 cookies (closer to 25) but one tray was left in the over too long and burnt - oops! ;)
