Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies are the one cookie that embodies all the warm spices of the holidays; cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
The flavor kind of reminds me of gingerbread men, only it won’t crumble apart when you bite into it.
Maybe we should call them a soft gingerbread cookie.
If you are only going to bake one cookie this holiday season, you should make it this one.
This cookie is soft and chewy.
Since it is rolled into sugar prior to baking, it sparkles too.
The flavors are strong enough that it holds up well under a light coating of almond bark or chocolate coating.
If you really want to dress this one up, add some holiday sprinkles.
This recipe can be halved, but since it requires at least an hour in the refrigerator prior to baking, I make the whole batch at once.
Yes, it does make a lot of cookies, but if I had to guess, I would guess these are made mostly around the holidays and holidays mean sharing right?
So go ahead and make them all and spread some holiday cheer.
A full batch also means you will have enough cookies to cover some with almond bark, some with chocolate, and leave some plain.
Uncoated, these cookies store well in the refrigerator. Soft ginger molasses cookies also travel well since they are a soft cookie.
These cookies pair well with warm apple cider, hot tea, freshly brewed coffee, and hot chocolate.
Whenever I eat these, I feel like I am sitting in front of a cozy fire with snow gently falling outside. Almost like a holiday greeting card scene.
If you are old school, like me, I promise the smell of these baking will remind you of simpler holiday times.
