If you need some inspiration for your ‘to-bake' list, you're in luck today my friend! I'm sharing this recipe for Glazed Crisp Ginger Molasses Cookies.
Are you making your list and checking it twice? I'm not talking about your list for Santa, but the list of all the cookies and sweets you'll be baking this year for Christmas.
I don't know about your home, but in my home, the discussion about which cookies make THE list can be quite contentious.
These glazed Ginger Molasses Cookies are the perfect combinations of crisp and spicy and are typically my mom's contribution to the cookies we consume on Christmas Eve, after church and dinner, while we continue the tradition of watching “A Christmas Story”. You know, the movie in which Ralphie wants a Red Rider BB Gun for Christmas and his dad wins a leg lamp.
If you haven't watched it, you should…it's a delightful movie that my family enjoys year after year.
Fresh ginger, crystallized ginger and ginger powder really up the zing in these cookies. And while I can go months without a glass of milk, in my book milk goes hand in hand with cookies (sorry to my lactose intolerant friends?)
My mom found this recipe on Martha Stewart's website and has been making it ever since. And since I'm not one to recreate the wheel, I'm including Martha's recipe. My only ‘change' to the recipe is the very simple glaze that I drizzle over the cookies when they are cool.

My mom also notes that these ‘freeze well', but…we've never gotten around to freezing them. I mean…who does that anyway?
