Triple Ginger Snaps

Bill and I have each influenced our children. He loves Oreos; they love Oreos. I am not a fan. The kids love ginger cookies, I love ginger cookies. He will not touch them. If he married some other gal, his children would most likely be eating canned beanie weanies and boxed mac and cheese. Thank goodness our children are well rounded. And that they love my chewy ginger snaps. My standard, go-to recipe is full of warm spices and molasses. The ginger in this version is amplified by using powdered ginger, fresh ginger and crystallized ginger. Perfect teatime cookie and perfect holiday cookie!

Ginger-Palooza

I first baked these up in 2009 when they appeared in the December issue of Bon Appetit. These sassy cookies were an instant hit with their intense ginger flavor. I’ve tweaked them very slightly to make prep easier. If you are a ginger fan, you’ll love these babies!

  2. Lynn@Happier Than A Pig In Mud says:

    Perfect with a hot cuppa! You really have me needing to pick up some crystallized ginger this weekend:@)

  3. I love to use my basic sugar cookie recipe and let the kids decorate them.

  4. I’m a huge ginger fan and adore ginger snap cookies. I especially like to use them in my sauerbraten recipe (without the sugar topping of course). These cookies looks wonderful, Liz.

  5. I adore ginger cookies! These look awesome, Liz.

  6. My favorite cookies to bake at the holidays is Iced Homemade Sugar Cookies

  7. I like making chocolate crinkles and Russian tea cakes for Christmas.

  8. I LOVE gingersnaps! And I love them chewy and extra gingery. These look perfect, Liz!

  9. ohhhhh I bet these cookies just smell like Christmas!

  10. Beautiful ginger cookies.. today I’ve made some cookies with my daughters.. they really enjoyed it.. will have to try these as well..

  11. Hope those children realize the narrow escape they had when their father had the good sense to marry you. See, I am giving him some credit too. And that is how we build consensus.

    Gorgeous ginger cookies, Liz, as always.

  12. I’m still laughing at beanie weenies and boxed mac and cheese.

    Ginger snaps are what I think of when I think of Christmas because it’s the only time of year my mother would make them. Not that she made anything quite as pretty as yours.

  13. What deliciousness! I can imagine dunking one of these cookies in a nice cup of tea!

    Annamaria

  19. I really need to try my hand at making some GiGi-Diet Approved Ginger Snaps! 😀

  20. Hotly Spiced says:

    Something’s talking and I don’t know what it is or how to turn it off! I’m now hearing about thrush! Back to the cookies…I can’t think. It won’t stop. What is going on. Not there’s an ad for super-krill oil but I can’t see an ad for krill oil. I do love ginger snaps xx

  21. Yum! I love all the ginger in these ginger snaps. I can only imagine how wonderful the aroma was while they were baking 🙂

  22. Like your childrens, love this Ginger cookies ! They are so Lucky they have you 😉

  23. I love making peanut butter cookies! But I want to try new recipes this year. The ginger snaps look awesome.

  24. I’m with you, Liz. Ginger cookies are the best, and I really don’t care for Oreos. I usually make my grandmother’s ginger snap recipe, but I could definitely make an exception for a three-ginger cookie!

  25. this must smell fantastic when baking and i’m sure taste delicious. i can’t wait to try them

  26. Lizzy these cookies sound so good. I’m slowly becoming more and more fond of ginger as I get older…my tastebuds are maturing haha! And I know my mom would LOVE them!! 😀

    Hmmm my favorite holiday cookie would definitely be Chinese Spice Almond cookies. Goodness I love those…All year I look forward to those cookies and Thanksgiving dinner.

    Have a wonderful weekend ahead.

    xo,
    Tammy<3

  27. My mom was a huge gingersnap fan and she would have loved these. I like using them as a crust for cheesecake.

  28. Bobbie Smith says:

    My favorite to make are the peanut butter kiss cookies

  29. Jenny Ham says:

    I like to make Almond shortbread cookies for the holidays I color them with a little green food coloring.

  30. Shannon Orton says:

    Sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles

  31. Hey Lizzy I do love a good ginger cookie! I often make Dorries recipe but this looks like a great recipe. Three kinds of ginger has to be yummy.
    I teach a lesson in our church’s woman’s organization –Relief Society. I taught last Sunday, it was my birthday so I made everyone a yummy ginger cookie drizzled in white chocolate. They were a hit. My lesson on gratitude turned out good too. I’m grateful for good cooks like you that share yummy recipes!
    Have a great weekend.

  32. These cookies sound perfect both me and the other half love ginger and we will certainly enjoy these on our holiday table.

  33. Ha! Ha! Canned Beanie Weenies and box Mac and Cheese! You really gave me a good chuckle at that image. I have totally changed my hubby’s palate since marrying him. He does influence the kids when it comes to sweets and desserts. I get them on the savory/spicy food.

    My mother adores ginger snaps… I also have crystallized ginger in my cupboards… now I have a recipe to use it. 🙂

  34. My fave cookie to bake during the Christmas season is sugar cookies that i then decorate using the outline and flood method. they really seem like the holidays to me when I am done and plate them during parties or box them up to give away. i esp. love when kids decorate them b/c they have such vivid imaginations and think outside the box better than I can. I love this giveaway…it’s a baker’s dream come true…thx for hosting it!!!!

  35. I love baking sugar cookies, they’re so easys to decorate and taste delicious!

  36. Ginger perfection, Liz! The sugar crackle and the crystalized ginger would definitely have me going back for seconds! P.s. Oreo fans are known to have exceedingly good taste…And, yes your kids are lucky to have a gourmet cook for a mom =)

  37. Hehe, too cute about the beanie weanies 🙂 Bill and your kids are so lucky to have you making all these amazing recipes for them 🙂 I love chewy ginger snap cookies and yours look absolutely perfect!

  38. YUM, I am crazy about gingerbread and this recipe looks awesome, a great new twist on an old classic!

  39. Hi. I just took these cookies out of the oven. They did not spread much and are still quite thick. I followed the recipe to the letter. Any idea of what might be the cause?
    They sure smell good though!

    • Hmmmm….I’m not sure! My recipe has a little more molasses than the Bon Appetit version and you’d think that would make the dough spread a little more, not less. Was your butter at room temperature? I’m guessing yes. And was your baking soda fresh? Those are my only guesses of what could have gone wrong. I hope they’re still delicious!
