Ginger Crinkle Cookies are soft and chewy in the middle and crispy on the edges. The best gingersnap taste, our family favorite for the holidays! PLUS a $250 gift card to Minted.com!
So, I have a confession to make. I’m not much of a cookie lover. I tend to like brownies and cakes more than cookies. Maybe I’m crazy.
But there’s one cookie that really floats my boat. Ginger cookies, gingersnaps, ginger crinkles…whatever you want to call them, they are my favorite! I’m sort of picky and only like the ones that are soft and chewy, not the hard crispy ones you buy in those boxes at the store. 😉
This recipe for ginger crinkles is my absolute favorite. I got the recipe from my cousin and make them just about every holiday season and during the other times of the year, too. Not only is the recipe super simple to throw together, but they taste absolutely amazing! Full of ginger and spices. Soft and chewy middles with just the tiniest of crispy edges.
They come out perfect every single time. This is such a foolproof recipe, even if you aren’t an experienced baker, you can make these. If you know how to measure ingredients, you can make these and they will turn out fantastic every time!
They’re one of the best cookies to make during the holidays. Put some of these into your holiday gift boxes, and your neighbors and kids’ teachers will love you!
- 2/3 cup coconut oil melted (or canola oil)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 4 Tbsp. molasses
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. ginger
- Preheat oven to 350º F.
- Sift flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and ginger together in a bowl.
- In another bowl, mix oil and sugar together until combined.
- Add egg and beat well. Stir in molasses.
- Blend in dry ingredients until just mixed. Roll into 1 " balls and then drop in a bowl of sugar to coat.
- Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 8 minutes in preheated oven.

Hecl yeah! Gingersnap rnd into a soft crinkle cooki. Love it!
I’m with you on soft, chewy gingersnaps — they are one of my favorite cookies! I will be posting a version soon, too. 🙂 I love that you used coconut oil — I haven’t tried baking cookies with it yet. Pinning this to try!
Absolutely delish! We actually just ran out of treats – guess I will have to make these tomorrow!!
YES Gina!! You will not regret it! 🙂 Thanks friend!

I love cookies that are soft and chewy. I don’t like hard cookies. These look delicious. Proud they don’t have cloves too.
I might try these with whole wheat too. Did you use coconut oil that doesn’t have a coconut taste? I have both kinds.
Kristine @ Kristine's Kitchen says
That’s funny, I’m the total opposite – I’d take a cookie over a brownie or cake most days! These cookies look absolutely perfect. Soft and chewy centers with barely crisp edges are my favorite, and I love a good ginger cookie this time of year! Pinned!
Andi @ The Weary Chef says
I love ginger cookies too, Jen. I’m going to have to try this recipe with spelt flour and see how it goes. I’m sure they will be delicious!
Mary Frances says
Those are some gorgeous cookies! The sugar crinkle is just addictive. These should be required for Christmas cookie trays! Pinned!
