Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Let’s get one last Christmas cookie recipe in under the wire, okay? I’ve been baking up a storm for weeks, and these are probably my favorite out of the bunch.

You’ll read the recipe and think, “Flatten with a spatula, Amber?”, but that’s really how I achieved that perfect chewy texture. I don’t claim to know if that’s a professional thing to do, but it certainly worked for me.

These Chewy Ginger Molasses cookies embody Christmas flavors for me – especially ginger and nutmeg. Folks might go for the more flashy cookies with festive M&Ms or candy cane kisses, but when it comes down to it, I think the classics are far more satisfying.

What about you? What’s your favorite classic Christmas cookie?

I quite often push down my cookies when I take them out the oven (although I am silly enough to use my fingers, I really should use a spatula!) and you’re right, it gives them such a great texture. Merry Christmas Amber, I hope you have a wonderful time over the holidays : )

I totally retweeted these when I saw them, but have been a little slow in the commenting department until now. They totally caught my eye though because I love a good chewy cookie! Can’t wait to make them!
