Baking Molasses Crinkles Cookies for Christmas

Baking cookies is a Christmas tradition in my family. Even though my daughter is not quite a year old, I am already starting the tradition with her. Just the other, she and I baked a batch of molasses crinkles cookies together. Mostly she helped me by dragging all my pots and pans and all the rags out of the two cabinets that she can open, but she also helped me by tasting the cookie dough. And, yes, I used pasteurized eggs, so the dough was safe to eat.
