These Ginger Crinkles come from Kristen in Chattanooga, Tennessee, whose mom has tweaked the recipe to perfection. They're a constant request every year at Christmas cookie exchanges and no one can believe there's no butter in them!
What You'll Need:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup molasses
What To Do:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger; set aside.
- In another large bowl, with an electric mixer, combine oil and 1 cup sugar and mix briefly. Add egg and mix until fully incorporated. Stir in molasses. Gradually add flour mixture and continue to stir until well combined. (Dough will be sticky.)
- Place remaining sugar in a shallow dish. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place on ungreased baking sheets 2 inches apart.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
For an extra fancy touch, dip cooled cookies halfway into melted white chocolate and sprinkle with colored sugars.

We had a little fun in the Test Kitchen and turned your favorite banana bread upside-down! Our Upside-Down Banana Bread is great as-is or served with some vanilla ice cream. Just be warned, no matter how you decide to eat it, it'll be hard to stop at just one piece!
