Crinkled Ginger Molasses Cookies

crinkled ginger molasses cookies for Christmas

…it’s CHRISTMAS COOKIE TIME!!!

Today I bring you a recipe for one of my favorite EVER cookies, crinkled ginger molasses cookies. I developed these specifically so that they’re a cross between those puffy crinkle cookies and those flat chewy molasses cookies. They have a crisp edge and a super chewy inside, and I would liken the chewiness to a fudgy brownie kind of texture. It’s awesome.

I wrote up this recipe and filmed the following video to raise awareness for a great nonprofit organization called Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. It was founded by two parents who lost their six year old son after a four year long battle with cancer, and after they learned that over 25% of pediatric cancer deaths were because of a lack of effective therapies and a lack of funding, they decided to raise money with bake sales and cookies! As more and more people have gotten involved in the cause, they have grown tremendously. I encourage anyone who is curious about learning how to get involved to read about their story, donate, or host a bake sale event.

Here’s the full video instructional on how to make these cookies:

But of course, I’ll take you through the cliff notes version as well.

These cookies are very easy, and they start out with a spiced flour with ginger, cloves, and allspice:

Spices for ginger molasses cookies recipe

Then you get the wet ingredients together, which are butter, sugar, egg white, and blackstrap molasses:

blackstrap molasses added to butter for molasses cookies

Mix the spiced flour into the wet ingredients and you’ll get a scoopable dough. Use a cookie scoop (I used the OXO medium scoop) to portion the dough into balls, then roll the dough balls in granulated sugar (this gives the cookies an awesome crunch):

Place the sugar rolled cookie dough balls onto a parchment lined sheet pan, and into the oven they go!

Bake for 13-14 minutes until they are crinkly on top, then let them cool completely.

Crinkled Ginger Molasses Cookies

Yield: 1 dozen cookies (1 sheet pan full)

Crinkled Ginger Molasses Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 4 tbsp butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 egg white
  • 4 tbsp blackstrap molasses*

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a big bowl, whisk to combine the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, allspice, and cloves.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until combined. Add the egg white and whip until smooth, then add the molasses. Mix in your dry ingredients until the flour just disappears. Use a cookie scoop to portion out the cookie dough into 12 balls, and roll them in granulated sugar. Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes, then allow to cool. These cookies freeze well after being baked (and I will eat them straight out of the freezer).

Notes

*Blackstrap molasses has a stronger, more potent flavor than regular molasses, but if you can't find it, feel free to use regular.

        Thanks Joanne. I did measure flour. Only thing i think may have done it was I waited and watched for them to crinkle in oven. They were looking great and puffy at end of cooking time but not crinkleing so i waited. when they did start cracking 2 minutes later they just flattened out totally.

    My favorite cookie is something I have deemed the “Chocolate Chip Master Chief” in honor of the Navy. Why Master Chief, you ask? Because they are SALTY of course! I added a few grains of rock salt to the top of each chocolate chip cookie which brings out all the other flavors. The result is the most mouth-watering chocolate chip cookie ever!

    I love my mother’s Shortbread cookies. She follows her mother’s exact recipe to make it in sticks and in molded cakes. And it’s such a Christmas memory because we always had it out at the holidays and my mother still makes a tin for my brother, my sister and myself and for our workplaces to share.
    We sit late on Christmas night, with a cup of tea, nibbling on the shortbread and reminiscing of years gone past.
    Such a history baked into a simple treat. Simply beautiful.

    My heart is a lil sad by this request…for how can I just pick one..? I don’t get to travel much, so Chocolate Dipped Macaroons (from The Cookie Bible) are my faves when I feel like “getting to know Paris”. Or, a Double Decadent Chocolate with White Chocolate chips (from The Cookie Bible) always bring forth comfort from that time of the month friend…and at Christmas time: well, it’s Freshly Baked Gingersnaps of course..but I’d have to say that a comfortable classic, just melt in yo mouth lil morsel would have to be Peanut Butter with Hershey’s Kisses on top..if only there was an alternative to that ever so bland milk chocolate kiss..hmm..

    Incendentally, they are these cookies.

    Just a different recipe.

    They aren’t flat, though, they’re nice and puffy and have a great salty-sweet taste and a prominent ginger-molasses flavor. When they’re warm especially, but even two days later (we normally make some sixty cookies at a time, because they get eaten so quickly!!) they just melt in your mouth.

    Best cookies ever!!

    I personally love the chocolate-peanut butter Ritz cracker cookie. It is super easy, crunchy, and salty-sweet! Simply spread peanut butter on a Ritz cracker, top with another cracker, dip in chocolate, and cool.

    What did I do wrong? They stated crinkling then went flat as a fritter. The dough was very wet and hard to roll. I refrigerated for an hour to stiffen it. I pulled them out and was almost burnt.

      Hi Frankie, you know, usually if a cookie goes flat it’s because the butter was too warm, but what’s strange is you said you refrigerated them for an hour. The dough should be wet to the point where it leaves a bit of residue on your hands, but they shouldn’t be hard to roll. Did you measure or weigh the flour?

    My mother’s Chocolate Mint snaps. I don’t know how she makes them, and I don’t want to know – it’s her special thing. All I know is she makes them every year only at Christmastime and I keep a bag in the freezer as long as I can (last year’s batch made it all the way to April and I ate the last one on my birthday!).

Also I dream about the smooth topped anise cookies my German grandmother made at Christmas. I’ve seen recipes but none like I remember. She didn’t leave her recipes, they were all in her head.

    One of my cookies that I make every year at Christmas is Black Strap Molasses cookies. They are a rolled out cookie that takes 2 days to make ( large batch) and it has to refrigerate before you roll out. You get between 10 and 15 dozen out of one batch. Nothing beats Black Strap molasses to cook and bake with.

But our year around cookie that we all enjoy are my Craisin Oatmeal Scotchies. I DESPISE raisins so i use craisins instead, and I love Butterscotch anything.

    My aunt’s sugar cookie! She makes them for many holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas, and decorates them with the best frosting too! Next would be peanut butter then chocolate chip…I could go on and on!

    My favorite is probably shortbread dipped in dark chocolate, but I have a special place in my heart for ginger cookies. I will have to try this one soon!

    My favorite cookie is my mother’s lebkuchen with marzipan and jam sandwiched in the middle, and coated with dark chocolate!

    These look wonderful! I’m going to make them tomorrow. Have you ever doubled the recipe? Just wondering how it will work out. I’d like to make 2 dozen to give as a gift. Thanks!

      Hi Elizabeth, I had another reader report that she doubled the recipe and it worked well. Happy holidays!

    I know you’re supposed to use a different kind of dough for gingerbread men, but these look really really good and I have to use the cookie cutters my mother gave me or else she’ll have a fit… and I dont want to make gingerbread twice. Will the shapes turn out at all you think?

      lol! Well, they’d probably be puffy, but I think if you rolled the dough out and cut the shapes, they’d be fairly successful.

    Hi Joanne,

    I can’t have sugar but I love to bake. These ginger cookies look good so I’d like to try them. I was wondering if i could substitute agave for white sugar. Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Lucy

      Hi Lucy, unfortunately I don’t think the agave would substitute well here. The coarse sugar cuts holes into the butter during the creaming process, and this is what gives the cookie the ability to rise (the leaveners inflate the holes that the sugar cut with gas). If you do try it, let us know how it turns out. It might be a bit dense but who knows, it might still be very tasty!

    Hi Joanne,

    beautiful cookies! I’m going to try your recipe this weekend :) i have a quick question though, does the dough need to be refrigerated for a bit before shaping them and putting them into the oven for baking? i have used recipes that do this, and wanted to see if it’s necessary for your recipe. thanks!

    • avatar Joanne Ozug November 8, 2013, 8:57 am

      Hi, thanks! If you work quickly enough and your kitchen isn’t too warm (in other words, if the butter in the dough doesn’t warm up too much), you can just go ahead and bake without refrigeration. If you want to refrigerate them to store, you can. Enjoy!

    My favorite is Oatmeal Raisin cookies but these ginger ones would be a close second. Thanks for posting the recipe using molasses as that’s how my grandmother used to make them! Can;t wait to get a batch in the oven. I pinned the recipe and like you on facebook!

    I love molasses cookies, and I want them chewy too. So, I have got to try these for Christmas baking.

    I gave this recipe to a friend and she says she followed it precisely but the cookies didn’t “crinkle”, just flattened out. It was disappointing, but she says the cookies were delicious so she will try it again. Do you have any insights into what might have caused her problem?

    My fav cookie is what some call Swedish , pecan snowballs. Butter, flour sugar, pecans. Refrig. Roll into balls, bake. Roll in powdered sugar while they are slightly warm. They melt in your mouth. These are our family tradition choice.
    Ty for you fabulous site and videos. I at my age can still learn. By watching you I gain confidence that I really can make Carmel!!
