World's Best Gingersnap Cookie Recipe
In case you were wondering how living sugar-free could taste so good, I have provided proof in the form of the best cookie on earth. The recipe has been in the family for a long time, but I have switched one of the ingredients: sugar. Use date sugar instead of white refined sugar, it is worth the money. Date sugar is delicious to bake with because there is virtually no difference in taste and quality of the baked goodie. However, it does not melt well which makes it a poor substitute for drinks and items that will not go through a heating process.
The World's Best Gingersnap Cookie Recipe
1 cup butter
1 cup date sugar
1/4 cup dark molasses
Mix these ingredients together, then add:
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
Mix these and then add:
2 3/4 cup flour (can use whole wheat flour...)
1 tsp. baking soda
Mix until they are ready to roll into balls (do NOT roll in sugar of any kind) and place evenly on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes until they are cracked on top. I always like to take them out early so they are especially soft and chewy. Every oven is different, so check often and enjoy!
