Welcome to Christmas my friends! I love baking, eating, and sharing these cooking all through the winter season… but especially at Christmas time. This recipe is my take on the classic soft-chewy molasses cookie… with a huge punch of ginger!
A note on Molasses:
Not all Molasses is the same. Just read the comparison of Nutrition facts on these two bottles. One is a regular grocery store brand, the other is an all natural organic brand I picked up at a more health conscious grocery store. It has a WILDLY INCREASED amount of IRON!
SO many women I know are mildly-severly Anemic. Anemia is a fairly common Iron deficiency that leaves you feeling extremely tired, short of breath, and susceptible to infections…just to name a few. Adding a few Tablespoons of Molasses into your daily diet is a great way to boost your iron.
Or, just eat a few of these cookies.
I made these in a food processor… but your KitchenAid will do nicely too!
Ginger Ginger Ginger… these cookies have FRESH grated, powdered and crystalized Ginger!
While you can of course roll these in Blonde Coconut Sugar, I find that using Washed Raw Sugar gives them the beautiful Holiday Sparkle we all love.
