Holiday Baking | Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

ROSE & IVY Journal Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

It is that time of the year again, holiday cookie baking! It is one of my favorite things to do during the month of December and I always bite off more than I can chew (no pun intended) meaning I want to bake a lot.  I am kicking this year's baking season off with a Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookie that has been sprinkled with sugar.
