Here’s my recipe, some delicious Christmas Molasses Ginger Cookies! Who doesn’t love these warm spices during the fall months? These are always so good with a tall glass of ice cold milk. The trick to getting them flat is to push your cookies down before they’re in the oven so they can be pretty flat or else you’ll just get a big ball of cookie!
