Ginger Molasses Cookies

Ginger Cookies are my favorite so I’m biased.  This recipe is extremely soft and chewy with the ginger and spice flavors coming out nicely. Perfect for holiday parties. I think this is the best ginger cookie recipe I’ve ever made. Makes about 24 cookies. Perfect dessert for Orange Chicken Stir Fry.
