Chocolate Ginger Molasses Cookie

Ginger snap cookies have always been one of my favorites. Here, the combination of chocolate and ginger is a pleasant variation. They have that spicy nip of the ginger with the not overwhelming influence of the chocolate. The cookies actually come out looking more chocolatey than they really are. The consistency of the cookie is just right, not too soft and not too crunchy.






They are a great base for decorated cookies , which I so love to do. I used the opportunity to do some Valentine shapes and a few simple designs with the icing. While I enjoy the process of the decorating, I prefer to eat them plain.

 These are easy to make and you can cut them in  any shape to suit your purpose.
Here's the link for the recipe.

  1. Beautiful work, Yael! I love your cutout hearts, especially the ones with the smaller heart cut out of the center. And your icing is beautiful-- is this the same icing recipe? Mine was much more liquid, so I couldn't pipe such pretty, precise designs. Great photos and nice job on these cookies! :)
