These soft, chewy and rich molasses cookies are the perfect treat for a long, cold winters night. Our Signature Ginger Sugar enhances the normal molasses cookie flavor with a warm ginger note without being hot. Because our ginger sugar is made with turbinado sugar these cookies also have a satisfying crunch that makes their soft texture just that much more delicious.
These cookies are kind of addictive, it is hard to eat just one! We are sure Santa, himself would approve.
If you are looking for a new Christmas cookie to try this year, this is it!

- ½ tsp ground cloves

- Chill dough for at least 1 hour.
