    Chewy Ginger Cookies Recipe

    Chewy Ginger Cookies Recipe

    I love baking cookies during the holiday season. Molasses crinkles are one of my favorite baked treats. This year I decided to also try a new ginger cookie recipe that I absolutely loved. Like all my other Christmas cookies, my chewy ginger cookies freeze well, so you can enjoy a couple here and there all holiday season.

    • 3/4 cup of white sugar, plus extra
    • 1/4 cup of molasses

    • 1 1/2 teaspoons of ginger
    • 1/4 teaspoon of cloves

    5. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients.
    6. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

    10. Immediately remove the baked cookies from the cookie sheet.
