Ginger Biscuits


When my mechuteneste first told me about this recipe, I wrinkled my nose — it just didn’t sound too appetizing, or like a popular choice for Family First. I couldn’t have been more wrong! These cookies are so good, you can’t eat just one. The ginger is mild, yet adds fantastic flavor that makes these biscuits truly out of this world. Not to mention that it takes seconds to make, and you can even mix the dough by hand.


Prepare the Cookies

Yields 4–5 dozen biscuits

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, oil, and corn syrup.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and ginger.
3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough comes together.
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
5. Roll dough into one-inch (two- and one- fourth-centimeter) balls and place on Gefen Parchment-lined baking sheets, allowing three inches (seven and a half centimeters) between cookies (they spread a lot).
6. Press down on each ball with the tines of a fork and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture, if desired.
7. Bake for 10–12 minutes, or until beginning to brown at edges. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
