These Gingerbread cookies are so soft and chewy! I love having gingerbread cookies during the holidays. They always make me feel warm and cozy. This recipe is so easy to make. You can whip these cookies up in 30 minutes or less, and before you know if you have these soft chewy cookies that you can’t put down. The combination of the ginger, cinnamon, and molasses gives you those christmas flavors we all love. While giving you a warm and cozy holiday feeling. They are also wonderful as holiday gifts or favors. Just bake up a few dozen, and put them in some holiday tins with some decorative gift tissue paper and you’re all set! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
