Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies

Print Friendly

This is one of my all-time favorite cookies. I don’t make them often though because I will usually eat them until they are all gone. Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies are like Ginger Snaps without the snap. Usually just rolled in granulated sugar, sometimes I like to dress them up a little with some colored sugar mixed with the granulated sugar for a little extra sparkle.
