Calories: 134.65kcal


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 eggs large, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 4 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer combine sugar and oil.
  • Beat in eggs in at a time until combined.
  • Stir in molasses, then gradually add the dry mixture into creamed mixture and mix well.
  • Using a cookie scooper, scoop dough into 3/4-in. balls and roll in sugar.
  • Place 2 in. apart on an ungreased cookie/baking sheet. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, I love mine a little soft so I remove at 10 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and allow the baking sheet to cool on a wire rack.
  • If you are dipping your Ginger Snaps, add melting chips and shortening/oil in a small bowl. Please in microwave and heat in 30-second intervals, stir in between until chips are melted and smooth. Then dip cookies however you would like, we prefer to dip, 1/2 of the cookie into the chocolate or drizzle over the cookies, place dipped cookies on parchment or wax paper until chocolate is set.
