My Bakery Style Ginger Molasses Cookies make the perfect cookie for gift giving this Holiday season!

Bakery Style Ginger Molasses Cookies

One of my favorite cookies of the season are by far ginger molasses cookies.  One little secret….stick them in the freezer.  They stay chewy, chilled and beyond fabulous.  That’s how I eat these babies straight from the freezer.  Maybe I’m a weirdo, but trust me :)

Stock up on molasses, you will be making these cookies over and over….and over.


Bakery Style Soft gingernaps

Best spices ever.  Ginger and cinnamon.  Lots of it!

I’ve made these fun white chocolate dipped Nilla Wafers with my boys a number of times over the last few weeks and just have to share them….even though it’s a no brainer recipe.  Sometimes it’s nice to see you can jazz up a cookie and make it fun and festive for a last minute Holiday party!!

You would have thought I just baked a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies after I made these with the boys and their friends.  They were gone as fast as I put them out!

Why is frosting so good?  Well I guess because it is mostly butter and sugar, ha!  I am in love with this peppermint crunch frosting.  It is good enough to eat right from a spoon or use it to frost your favorite baked goods.  It’s really good with graham crackers too!
