Chewy Ginger Cookies

1 c oil
2 c sugar
1/2 c molasses
2 eggs
1 t salt
1 t cloves
1 t ginger
2 t cinnamon
4 t baking soda
4 1/2 c flour
Have mixer running and add ingredients in the order given.
Shape into balls, roll in sugar and bake 350 for 8-12 minutes,
depending on the size. (I use an icecream scoop and sprinkle sugar
on the tops instead of rolling in balls~ so much faster!)
They should be dark and crackly.
Perfect for fall and one of our family favorites.

  1. Those cookies look perfect, like they could be sold in a bakery. And I want that plate! Blue is my favorite color, but daisies are my favorite flower, so adjustments must be made along the way sometimes.

  2. Gingerbread, gingersnaps, ginger cookies, Thai food...mmmmmm!

    Your grandmother's green depression glass cake plate is so pretty. My mother collects pink depression glass.

  3. Kayren ~ it's the icecream scoop that makes them look so uniform! It makes it faster, too! You need to look for a pink depression glass daisy plate! :)

  11. Mmmmmm, Betsy, these look sooooo good and ginger-y! And what a pretty plate. I have pink and cranberry depression glass, but not green. I love this shade of green - it shows the cookies to their best advantage!

  18. Trishy ~ yea! I'm glad you liked them! They stay fresh quite a few days...or they freeze really well, too! I tried to visit your blog but one is from 2007 and one is invited readers only, so I hope you come back and see this comment! :)
