I am here to save your Christmas! No need to thank me (although, I do love fan mail). These Molasses Ginger biscuits will elevate your Christmas to heavenly/Santa flying over the Pacific Ocean levels. They are so spicy and taste exactly like Christmas.
These take no time at all and are a really stress-free bake for Christmas. Enjoyable even! So if you’ve been feeling like you want to bake something festive but also feel like you have no time or sanity left, get your pens and pantries ready! These biscuits are for you.
*Hot tip: when measuring the molasses in a cup, wipe a little oil around the cup with your finger first. The molasses won’t stick and all of it will drop out into the bowl!
I found this recipe at https://www.iheartnaptime.net/soft-molasses-cookies/ but mine turned out a little different. That recipe promised “soft and chewy” whereas mine turned out soft and puffy. No chew. I think this may have been because, like one of the three blind mice, I used the wrong ingredient! I swapped out Baking Soda for Baking Powder without realising. It didn’t hurt the biscuits AT ALL.
Get baking, enjoy and Merry Christmas!
