As promised, my recipe for soft gingersnaps! I made these yesterday for my 4K for Cancer fundraiser. I delivered them to my friends who donated, and they loved them!

Soft Gingersnaps

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 taps ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup turbonado sugar (Sugar in the Raw, optional)

Preheat oven to 360F.

In a medium mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with an electric beater or by hand. Add the egg, molasses, and salt and mix until combined.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon together. Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture and thoroughly mix. Add the remaining flour and mix until a uniform dough forms.

Use a spoon to scoop out balls of cookie dough, about the size of a large walnut. Dip one side in a bowl of the turbinado sugar and place on a greased cookie sheet. Use the palm of your hand to gently press down to flatten it slightly, with the sugar-dipped side up. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

Bake for about 8 minutes. You want to underbake them slightly so they will be soft. The bottoms should be only slightly browned.
