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.
