Chewy Double Ginger Cookies

Chewy Double Ginger Cookies
My boyfriend loves ginger molasses cookies. Absolutely LOVES. So when my stepmom made these over the holidays and he gobbled them up, of course I was excited for the opportunity to bake them for him myself. As a surprise. Because surprises are the best, aren’t they?

Really, these are some of the best ginger molasses cookies I’ve ever had. They’re the right amount of dense, chewy goodness. There’s enough ground ginger and candied ginger to go around and it makes everything feel ok in the world. Peace making cookies. There you go. These would also be great as ice cream sandwich cookies with vanilla bean or pumpkin ice cream, or with some chocolate chips added in. That’s the plan next time!
