The ones I'm thinking about are dark, with ginger in them, and you make them by rolling the dough in a ball and then rolling it in sugar and then flattening it just a bit when you put them on the baking sheet.

The most important part is that these are NOT soft. They're actually a little bit hard (not like, break your tooth off, but they've definitely got a crunch to them). They are perfect for dunking in coffee or hot chocolate or milk - great holiday cookies!

Does anyone have this old recipe?

Reminds me of ginger snaps. I've made these. And it's not like the ones in the grocery store. You can up the molasses in these of you want more of the molasses taste.

Here's another, might be closer to what you know. The act of rolling the ball in sugar and then flattening usually uses the term crinkle. I would use all shortening in the below link as butter makes it chewy.

Molasses Crinkles are one of my favorite cookies, but I like them soft and chewy, not crumbly. I suppose it's all in how long you cook them.

I've used recipes with both butter and oil as the fat and been happy with them.

This is not the recipe, but it sure looks like a good one. I will definitely try it! Thank you!

In fact, thanks to everyone for your help. I've read several recipes that sound really good and whether they're the one I was looking for or not, I'm sure they're delicious. You can hardly go wrong with a molasses cookie!
