Crack Cookies (aka Rochelle's Gingersnaps)

Rochelle's gingersnaps have quite the reputation. After polishing off a batch of these highly addictive little morsels, Alison and Kristing dubbed them "crack cookies." It's a name that's stuck. Now, there's no actual crack in them per se, but Alison and Kristin are pretty convinced that some kind of mind-altering chemical reaction happens when you eat them. Watch out.

Wet stuff
  • 3/4 c butter

  • 1 c white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 c molasses
Dry stuff
  • 2 1/2 c flour

  • 2 tsp baking soda

  • 2 tsp ground ginger

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp salt

Mix everything together in the usual cookie way. Then cook 'em: 350 for 9 minutes.
