Updated the recipe to specify that brown sugar should be used to ensure you get a richer color as well as adjust the baking time. Baking time will vary depending upon the size of the balls. e.g. teaspoon sized balls will require a shorter baking time, while tablespoonful sized balls may require up to 18 minutes.

Picture is deceiving. You do not get that rich dark color, due to the omission of molasses? The bake time is also incorrect. My baking time was 18 minutes.

flavor was satisfactory. Not good enough to make again.

Gingersnap cookies are being used in so many ways. Making a pie crust, or the bottom of a deliciously rich cheesecake, or just eating it directly as a snack is divine.

Nobody can never feel bored of eating these sweets, soft on the inside, and crispy on the outside. The sugar coating make these cookies look even more appealing.

Of course, these gingersnaps have been one of the classic Christmas cookies as well.

The sugar needs to be brown sugar not white to get the colour you require

Should there be molasses or dark brown sugar in the recipe?

Taste and cookie is goo overall but the cook time is too short. Mine was mine on the side of 14 minutes. Much lighter in color.

Has anyone tried making these a bit more diabetic friendly, like with sugar or flour alternatives?

Haven’t tried diabetic friendly version, definitely worth exploring. Please let us know how yours come out if you do try it. Happy baking :)

Can the dough or cookies be frozen to get ahead for a bake sale?
