‘Tis the season to . . . gain weight, break out, have nothing to wear. Poor baby, you need a cookie.
Meet Ginger Krinkles!
Nine little ingredients, five minutes to assemble, 10-15 minutes to bake. Voila!
(*’Tis a cookie-exchange award-winning recipe.)
2/3 Cup Vegetable Oil
1 Cup Granulated Sugar (—additional 1/2 cup sugar for rolling)
4 Tablespoons Molasses
2 Cups Flour
2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ginger
Mix oil and sugar, add egg and beat. Stir in molasses. Sift dry ingredients together and add to mixture.
Place spoonful of dough into separate bowl of sugar and roll into uniformly sized balls. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
“I was named after a Christmas cookie.”
Ginger Krinkles is crossing her fingers that this holiday season will be extra special, for once. She lost her job in San Diego and dreads moving back home to Ennui, Ohio, where she’s convinced she will end up like her mean ol’ grandmother (God rest her soul). Ginger has always been a holiday-hater. But she has a secret. Make that two. If you buy the first one, maybe it will be easier to unwrap the second: either Ginger is an elf, or there really is magic to be found in an old cookie recipe.
