Silver Dollar City's Famous Ginger Cookie
30 mins (prep 15, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
4 servings
This recipe came from the Joplin (Missouri) Globe Holiday Cookbook 2012. This Ginger Cookie is sold at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO. The recipe was also named one of Midwest Living Magazine's "20 Best Recipes of All Time". When I made them, the dough seemed too dry to form into balls so I added some more molasses. Not sure why it was dry for me. Also, DO NOT BE TEMPTED TO EAT THE DOUGH! It is horrible. I love to eat cookie dough, so naturally pinched a piece off and popped it in my mouth. Ugh! I thought I must have done something terribly wrong and was about to toss the whole batch...but then decided to bake one pan of cookies before I gave up on it. I am SO GLAD I did! The finished product is scrumptious! All you need to add is a glass of milk for dipping.
