These are so fun! They remind me of my grandmother too. I substituted 1c. of coconut flour for 1c. of the wheat flour and added two extra eggs. They came out delightful!

Nancy Caverly gave her grandmother's recipe for ginger molasses cookies a little makeover—reducing the butter and adding crystallized ginger for a spicy jolt.

Mine didn't crackle - I pushed down the puffy balls at 12 mintues with a fork, and they crackled a few minutes after that. Took a bite and woah- wayyy too much sugar for my liking. I may try again with sugar reduced by as much as half!! Or just try to find another recipe. Great potential. Also found the dough crumbly but after refrigeration I could form the balls in my hands without adding other ingredients.
These cookies were absolutely delicious! Because I did not have any crystalized ginger in my house I substituted the ginger for 1 tsp of powdered ginger. To enhance the flavor, I chilled the dough overnight. It tasted spectacular! I could not stop eating them. I will definitely bake them again!
