Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies with Fresh Ginger

No holiday would be complete without a molasses cookie.  These were REALLY tasty.  I think it might come from the amount of fresh ginger that is in the recipe…

Now I’m a sucker for all things ginger- so no problem there.

The rest of the dough is pretty standard molasses cookie dough- it gets refrigerated, then scooped, rolled into balls, rolled in sugar, and flattened for baking.

Now, I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again- these were delicious.  Might be the best molasses cookie that I’ve had- ever- especially warm from the oven… the only issue that I had is that they were flat as a pancake.  Mmmm… lets say flat as a crepe.

My second batch out of the oven was much improved.  Still flat- but not quite so paper thin- may be the first time I flattened too much?

Yum… starting off a New Year right.
