Watch Out! Gingerbread Cookie Recipes Will Turn Kids into Cookie Jar Thieves!
Gingerbread cookie recipes create. . .umm, gingersnaps!
Ever since I was a little boy I’ve loved gingerbread cookies. Most every boy does. And it doesn’t have to be Christmas or holidays either. Just mix up some gingersnap recipes and watch ‘em disappear. Kids may not say "Thank you!" for them now, but they’ll remember you for them. I do for my mom.
Note: You can substitute regular eggs for grassfed eggs in these recipes. Same with grassfed butter. It’s just that grassfed eggs and butter are loaded with omega 3’s and CLA and are therefore significantly healthier. (Omega 3 fatty acids are heart and brain healthy and CLA fights cancer.)
Sandy’s Gingersnaps Cookie Recipe
¾ cup butter, preferably grassfed
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well with mixer. Roll into small balls and flatten out on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle sugar on top. Bake in oven at 350° F for about 8 or 10 minutes. Don’t overbake. Makes about 5 dozen delicious gingersnaps.
Gertrude’s Gingerbread Cookie Recipe
2 cups sugar
Cream the sugar, shortening and eggs. Add the molasses, vanilla, vinegar, about 1/2 the flour, and the soda water. Mix well. Then add the remaining flour. Mix thoroughly. Roll the dough by hand into balls and dip in sugar. Bake on greased cookie sheet. Don’t overbake. Bake for 10-12 minutes in 350° F oven.
