Molasses Cookies

Ginger Cookies

Making ginger cookies during the Holidays is magical!  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. Enjoy!

Tips For Making The Best Cookies

  1. Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  2. For a more firm cookie, refrigerate your cookie dough for 24 hours before baking.
  3. Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  4. Do not ever grease your cookie sheets.  Will make cookies spread and change texture.
  5. Don’t skip creaming your butter and sugars for a good 2 minutes.  Helps create a fluffy, chewy cookie.
  6. Try sprinkling dough with just a touch of salt for a perfect sweet and salty combination.
  7. Don’t overtake your cookies.  Cookies will continue to cook on hot cookie sheet when removed from oven.
  8. Let cookies cool completely before storing in containers. This will keep their crispness
  9. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container for 3 days room temperature.
