Molasses Crinkle cookies are the molasses version of the famous and very popular Chocolate Crinkles (Kringles).
I love the flavor of ginger and molasses blended in this rich chewy cookie. I especially delighted when I have a large glass of cold milk to swirl the Molasses Crinkle Cookies in before taking a bite. They are an easy-to-make cookie that you can enjoy anytime. Put them on your baking list to try for the holiday season.
