Whole Wheat Ginger Crinkles

whole wheat ginger crinkle cookies

What is the red ninja called?


Are you laughing?

That joke was told to me by a 5 year old at like 4 am on the bus ride to the airport back from Wyoming.  I cracked up.

Anyways, these cookies have a really solid amount of ginger.  Although not more ginger than cinnamon or cloves so I am not really sure why they are called ginger crinkles and not clove crinkles.   Basically, these cookies are the total fall spice package.

Ginger Crinkles

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 egg

Cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Add in the egg.  Mix in baking powder, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger.  Add in the flours.  Drop by the tablespoonful onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.v
