Baking with Julia
So, did these turn out for you? What did you add? What did you change? Do tell!
Did anyone use regular jackstrap molasses?
Not sure that I would classify these cookies as gingersnaps. They weren’t especially gingery or snappy, but I quite liked them anyway. I upped the spices and swapped out the all purpose for spelt flour. I think the flour switch helped with the soft dough, I didn’t find it too hard to work with at all. I’d make them again.
Yes, blackstrap – I hadn’t had my coffee yet. Just wondered if unsulfured molasses made a difference either way. Would love to know how you amped up the spices, Renee.
Like Renee, I tripled the spices. I tried this recipe last year and the dough was super sticky, this time around I am not sure why but it was more manageable. This year I refrigerated it overnight as opposed to last December when the dough spent 3 days in the fridge :) Before cutting the cookies, I floured heavily the kitchen counter and also sprinkled heavily the rolled out dough. I figured that the molasses glaze would take care of things.
