Perfect Gingersnaps
Makes 5 dozen 2″ cookies

What You'll Need:
 
2 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp ground cloves

Pinch of salt

1 cup packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup molasses

3/4 cup canola oil

1 large egg

Sugar for rolling (Elissa likes evaporated cane juice or raw sugar)
 
What You'll Do:
 
Whisk together the flour, baking soda, spices, and salt in a medium bowl. In another bowl, combine together the brown sugar, molasses, canola oil, and egg until smooth. Mix the flour mixture into the brown mixture, stirring until dough comes together. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 20 minutes.
 
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop up bits of dough by the heaping teaspoonful and roll into balls between your palms, about the size of a quarter. Roll the balls in sugar and place on the baking sheets 2 inches apart. Bake 8 minutes–if you like crispy gingersnaps, try 9-10 minutes.
 
Cookies will be very soft but will firm up. Leave on the baking sheet several minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
