Chewy Ginger Snaps

Food is like a time machine for taste buds. These cookies take me back circa 2010. These chewy ginger snap cookies are filled with molasse, brown sugar, and nostalgia of my mom's friend baking these special treats for my brother and me.

Is this recipe actually easy?

This recipe is so simple. I was honestly surprised how quick I made this. I mixed all the ingredients in one bowl, formed the cookie dough balls, rolled in sugar, and baked. I like my cookies to be effortless and this recipe is just that.

I've been in a BIG cookie mood lately. I don't know if that is because it is nearing Christmas or because I want my house to be warmer, so I turn on the oven. Either way, I'm here for it.

  • 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup molasses
