  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the cake mix, baking soda and ginger. Make a well in the center and pour in the water, molasses and vanilla. Mix until thoroughly blended. Roll into 10 balls and place them 3 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops are cracked and cookies are firm. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

Very simple, quick recipe. Here's what I did: used a "pudding in the mix" cake mix, chilled the dough for about an hour, rolled the dough in granulated sugar and didn't flatten them as the recipe said. They turned out very chewy/soft, and the granulated sugar gave them an ever-so-slight crispiness. They also have slightly strong molasses and spice taste, so be warned if that's not your thing. With the adjustments I made, it's a five star recipe at my house.



This gets 5 stars from me because it's so easy, and they taste good too. I mixed them with my mixer so the dough was too sticky to roll. I could care less, I just dropped them on a cookie sheet by the teaspoonful like any other cookie and baked them on airbake sheets for 8 minutes. It couldn't get any easier.



Not sure why this had gotten poor ratings. I loved the cookies. I mixed them by hand so they stayed nice and chewy. Maybe they got crisp for the others because they mixed them with a mixer and incororated too much air into them.? I did not flatten them slightly like the recipe said but i followed the rest of it exactly. Very easy nice cookie!! Update: Chewier and better flavor the next day. Thanks for the recipe! Mom and I love them!
