Ginger Crinkles

December 5, 2013Teresa

Teresa’s Bake Shop – Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2013

Well, here we are again–ready to roll out this year’s Christmas cookie offerings! Ginger Crinkles are the first cookie I baked this year out of the 3,000-5,000 cookies we bake each year for family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, church members, and service providers. John and I have already had people contacting us wanting to see if they are on our Christmas Cookie list this year! No kidding. 🙂

I made Ginger Crinkles for the first time several years ago for one of our Christmas Cookie Extravaganza’s and had a lot of people comment on how much they enjoyed them, so I decided to make this cookie again this year. These delicious spice cookies are rolled in sugar before baking.

I used Turbinado sugar because I wanted to clear it out of my pantry, but you can use regular sugar or colored sugar if you want a more festive theme. If you enjoy spicy cookies you will love these easy cookies made with ginger, cloves, cinnamon, molasses and corn syrup. Ginger Crinkles are crispy and crunchy rather than soft and chewy. So if you enjoy crunchy cookies that are a little harder than others, you’ll enjoy these, especially if you enjoy spice cookies.

However, if you prefer your cookies a little softer and plumper, then add a little extra flour to the recipe and you should be good to go.

If you’re looking for ideas for Christmas Cookie Exchanges, holiday or Christmas parties, or cookies to give to friends and family then consider these easy and economical cookies. I do recommend that you watch the time on your oven. Since I’m usually baking 4 or more racks at a time, the cookies take longer to bake then  if only one or two racks of cookies are baking at a time.
