Soft Ginger Molasses Cookies

Updated: May 21


Ginger Molasses Cookies are a holiday staple with hot cocoa and jolly music. They are easier to make than rolled gingerbread cookies and still fill your home with all the smells of cinnamon and exotic spices from the orient. In this recipe we used fresh grated ginger for the most distinct flavor, but you may use dry ginger if you'd like. We also favor adding a little vanilla to the dough, as it mellows the flavors and marries them. We also love them with a good coating of Raw sugar. Raw sugar is the residue left after sugarcane has been processed to remove molasses and refine the sugar crystals. With flavor similar to brown sugar, it should not be confused with brown sugar. We coat these cookies in Demerara sugar, a coarse-textured, dry, raw sugar from the Demerara area of Guyana just before baking and it gives them a crispy sugary coating that compliments the soft ginger cookies remarkably well.
