This ginger cookie recipe is different from the ginger snaps that you find in American stores. These are very similar to ginger nut cookies you will find in England. I first tried them in London and fell in love with them. They taste great dunked in milk or chai.

If you like cookies, you will love our other cookies – chocolate chip cookie, and eggless Russian tea cakes.

These cookies are made without eggs. All the ingredients used for this ginger cookie recipe are generally available in most pantries, except molasses. Molasses not only gives the ginger cookies a rich texture but also makes them iron-rich. Even, Ginger has its own medicinal benefits for all age groups.  This unique combination of Ginger and Molasses makes these cookies a healthy choice.

These cookies are also called as Ginger Nuts or Ginger Nut Biscuits not because they contain nuts, but because they are hard to bite just like nuts.

One of the most important tip to make the perfect cookies is to ensure that all the recipe ingredients are mixed well into a smooth dough. Bake and store these cookies as an anytime homemade healthy snack or a quick desert bite.
