  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger

Recipe Notes

Baking Tips/Notes:

  • I made my cookies on the thin side, but you could also make thicker chewier cookies.
  • Completely cool cookies before icing.
  • Use light-colored molasses for lighter cookies.  I used blackstrap molasses which yields a darker cookie.
  • Check smaller and thinner cookies prior to 8 minutes, say at 5 minutes so you avoid burning the cookies.
