Molasses Ginger Cookies

Molasses Ginger Cookies

Molasses ginger cookies are soft and chewy with the perfect amount of ginger flavor

I love cookies that are bigger than my hand! They make it that more enjoyable to eat because it’s like a never-ending cookie. But all good things must come to an end so of course these hand-sized cookies only prolong the heavenly cookie effect for a tad longer than regular sized cookies :)

If you haven’t looked at your calendar, you may not have noticed that today is 12/12/12. I’m obsessed with dates that have some kind of pattern to them. Like 10/11/12 or 11/12/13. I wish I could get married on a “cool” date. My wedding photographer got married on 10/10/10, how fun! Ok, that’s my random tangent of the day.
