Recipe Swap time ~Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies

I so love baking. I really do. For me, it has always been a pleasure, a stress reliever &, believe it or not, I love the smell of the goodies more than eating them at the end. I actually get full with the gorgeous scent during the process so much so,  I  do not want to try any when they are finished! So when Sarah announced HOLIDAY COOKIES as the theme I was super excited! I make tons of cookies this time of year & a new one for my list? Amazing! ESPECIALLY when it comes from Jessica at The Jey of Cooking! Her recipes are always delicious & this one did not disappoint.  I received Jessica's Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies. I did not change a thing, only added one tiny sugar gingerbread man on top for fun to add a bit of DeLish whimsy. I gave my Pumpkin Seed Cranberry Biscotti. Thank you so much Sarah at A Taste of Home Cooking for putting this together <3.
