Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies – classic holiday cookie that everyone loves! No special ingredients and no chilling the dough required!
One of my favorite things of the holiday season is baking cookies. Ginger cookies are one of my favorite! I love to bake them, share them and eat them. Molasses and ginger combo to me is a classic one when it comes to holiday cookies. The smell and the taste of it makes me so happy and excited for Christmas!
These chewy ginger molasses cookies are a must on our holiday cookie platter. Along side of my Red Velvet Crinkle cookies and soft and chewy M&M chocolate chip cookies. Together they make a fantastic display of treats or a perfect set to give to family and friends.
I love that these cookies are so easy to make. There is no need to chill the dough (although you can and it will produce slightly thicker cookies) which means you can enjoy a stack of these babies in 30 minutes from start to finish. When you want cookies – you want them now!
These cookies are chewy, perfectly spiced with ginger, cloves and cinnamon and have a slight crunch from the sugar coating. I scooped the dough with my favorite OXO cookie scoop in size medium and baked them on Silpat baking mat, as it assures even baking of each cookie. The dough is slightly sticky, so I scoop it and place it directly in the bowl with sugar. Roll it few times and it’s much easier to handle and roll into a perfect ball in your hands. Place cookies 2″ apart on a sheet so they have the room to spread. If you feel like having even more fun, you can dip the cookies in white chocolate and add festive sprinkles! Sprinkles are always a good idea when it comes to cookies! The more festive – the better!
This is my favorite recipe and it’s so easy – I hope you will try it and enjoy this season!
