Bakery Style Ginger Molasses Cookies

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.
