Soft, moist and super chewy, these ginger molasses cookies are the best! Dip them in chocolate or sparkle them with sugar for a delicious festive vibe.
Heeeyy guys! Gosh it’s been soo long since I’ve had a chance to post anything but I’m so happy to be back and sharing one of the best cookie recipes ever! I’ve got a few more fabulous recipes coming up but for now we have these amazing, super chewy, bursting with flavour ginger molasses cookies to feast our eyes on.
These ginger molasses cookies are soo delicious and incredibly heart warming. Just one bite makes you smile and what’s even better is just how easy they are to make.
They start with a simple basic cookie dough recipe, spice the flour mix with all of your favourite spices like ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg etc and then add in a couple of tablespoons of molasses to get that classic gingerbread taste.
The molasses I like to use is unsulfured molasses but I have also used regular sugar molasses if that is all that you can find. Other replacements to use is treacle but that can be a little more intense.
I really went all the way to get the ultimate chewy-ness so we’re using melted butter and only egg yolks here. In doing this you get a nice dense and chewy cookie that is wonderfully rich and tasty but super soft too, I love it!
Everything else is straightforward, stir everything together and chill the dough. The dough MUST be chilled or else they will spread so please don’t skip this part. When you’re ready to bake, scoop balls, roll in sugar and bake away.
I love making these dipped or drizzled in white chocolate. I hope you guys love them too!
