Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

8 tbsp Organic Unsalted Butter
0.75 cup Sugars, Granulated
1 large Egg, Whole
0.5 cup Molasses
2 cup Gold Medal Whole Wheat Flour
1.5 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1.5 tsp Ginger, Ground
1 tsp Nutmeg, Ground
1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
1 tsp Cloves, Ground
1 tsp Allspice, Ground

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and 1 1/2 cups of sugar until smooth. Mix in the eggs, and then the molasses. Combine the whole wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice, heaping the measures if you like a lot of spice. Stir the dry ingredients into the molasses mixture just until blended.

  3. Roll the dough into small balls, and dip the top of each ball into the remaining white sugar. Place the cookies about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheets.

  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops are cracked. Bake longer for crispy cookies, less time for chewy cookies. Cool on wire racks.
