Recipe Update: Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Update, 16 Dec ’18: I’ve found the perfect chewy ginger molasses cookie, thanks to Gimme Some Oven. Here they are, in their chewy, crackly glory! Perfect for the holidays and exactly what a molasses cookie should taste like, in my humble opinion.

I made molasses cookies a few years ago around the holidays, from a Joy the Baker recipe that turned out cookies with great flavor but that were too cake-y for my taste. This year, F and I both wanted to make something to take to work for the last week before Christmas break, and I immediately thought of molasses cookies. I looked in my saved recipes and discovered Gimme Some Oven’s recipe, which looked legit and more molasses-y – thus possibly chewier? – than Joy’s.

Lo and behold, these cookies are magnificent. The cinnamon, ginger and clove spice profile mean the cookies complement any holiday drink well and warm the soul a bit. F said, “These cookies are amazing. You could sell them!” I’ll take that as a compliment – though can’t take credit for the recipe itself. Make them now and you won’t be disappointed!
