I love a spicy cookie. The more ginger, cinnamon and molasses, the better. The contrast between the crisp edges and the chewy soft center make these irresistible.
My first official baking job was this past summer for an event at NASA. I baked 300 cookies. I chose three of my favorite cookie recipes and baked 100 of each. This recipe was the one I chose for the “spice cookie” category. I also baked the orange version of these Glazed Citrus Cream Cheese Cookies and my favorite chocolate chip recipe, Mrs. Field’s Cookies.
If you enjoy a spice cookie with chew, these cookies are perfect for you. If you are a spicy dessert fan, take a look at these recipes as well: Triple Ginger Snaps, Iced Gingerbread Molasses Bars, Spicy Ginger Molasses Bars, and Gingerbread Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting.
