Here is a 100+ year old fashioned family recipe for cinnamon snaps. You will love this molasses spice cookie with a nice crunch! These are very similar to ginger snaps so if you are a cinnamon fan and not so much for ginger this is the cookie for you! Dunk these in your tea, so good!
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. (Moderate speed until light and fluffy.)
Add the molasses and the dissolved baking soda. Mix thoroughly on low speed.
In another bowl combine about 4 cups of the flour and spices together and slowly add to the creamed butter and sugar mixture, mixing thoroughly until the dough is soft. (Add more flour as needed on low speed.)
Form a ball and roll out on a lightly floured surface and cut in desired shape. A thickness of about ⅛ inch works nicely.
Bake on parchment paper for 20 minutes or until just sightly dark around the edges.
Makes 3 about dozen cookies. These are a VERY crisp cookie with a "snap" and great for dunking!
