I don't have the patience for rolling cookies, so I turn everything into a drop cookie. Thank Rosina for this recipe!!! It's my birthday and I really wanted some good old ginger snaps but don't know where my recipe box is. I was so disappointed when all the other recipes on here had only 1/4cup of molasses!! I was worried about this recipe not having any baking soda or such, but they turned out beautifully! I did make a slight adjustment, I used only 2 tsp ginger and added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp ground cloves because I like my cookies spicy. To me, that's how good old fashioned gingersnaps are!! I also used blackstrap molasses, which is the best of the best (aka strongest) and it has 20% of your calcium per tablespoon so these cookies are good and healthy too! I did have to flatten them before cooking since I skipped the roll them out part. I just make tablespoon size balls and flattened them.
