Ginger Snap Bars

This is a new recipe that sounded good.... but I was wrong. They were not good, they were fantastic! If you are lucky enough to get one of the corners as your slice, consider yourself blessed. Especially if you cut into them after just five minutes of cooling. I'm not sure how good they are completely cooled, but the first two rows I devoured warm and fresh from the oven were delicious!


3/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp. ginger
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp. soda
1 egg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
2 Tbsp. sugar


Melt butter in saucepan; cool 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients except 2 Tbsp. sugar. Spread in greased 15x10 inch jelly roll pan. Batter will be very thick. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. sugar. Bake 350 degrees F for 10 minutes. Do not over bake. Cool 5 minutes and cut into bars.
