Molasses and Ginger Cookies

Molasses and Ginger Cookies Christmas has come and gone, but I’m still chowing down on these molasses and ginger cookies I guess that happens when you make enough to feed an army.

It doesn’t have to be the holiday season to enjoy these chewy molasses and ginger cookies. With their crunchy exterior and their chewy center, these sweet treats can be enjoyed all year long. 

Spiced with ground ginger and made with fancy molasses, these cookies are perfect for the lunch box, or enjoyed with a cup of tea or hot cocoa.
