Happy November! We had a treat on Halloween this year with unseasonably warm weather! I’m always game for those changes in weather, especially when I need to be outside for any amount of time. We’ve had it swing both ways for Halloween. We’ve had really warm, basically t-shirt weather. Normal conditions where it’s in the 30’s and 40’s at night. And also snow storms. I’m definitely not a fan of the latter. I can handle snow, but I’d prefer it to be in it’s appropriate months. October is not one of them.

I have a confession to make… I have already begun putting out Christmas decorations. So far it’s just a few little things… snow globes and nutcrackers. Just little touches here and there. I’m one of those people that absolutely hates skipping over holidays and jumping to the next, especially when it comes to ignoring Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday of the year. So I have zero plans to skip it or ignore it or even pretend that it’s not a big deal, when it is in fact a big deal. Our tree and stockings won’t make an appearance until after Thanksgiving. That’s a tradition I will stick to. But over the last few years, I’ve just found that once November hits, the temperature drops and the days get darker earlier… having those extra touches around the house, just make everything a big happier and festive.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always adored ginger cookies. Give me all the ginger molasses goodness. Gingerbread cutout cookies, ginger crinkle cookies, ginger all the sweet treats. Hands down ginger cookies over sugar cookies any day of the week. I’d happy pass up a plate of sugar cookies to snag a few spiced ginger molasses cookies.

They always scream Christmas to me, but I happily eat them year round. Their warm flavors make for a perfect addition to any Fall or Winter occasion… and any day ending in Y is absolutely an occasion special enough for these cookies.

These are hands down the absolute best soft and chewy ginger molasses cookies. Perfectly spiced and extra soft with a crisp sugar coating. A must make for any ginger cookie fan. These are guaranteed to become a new family favorite! Add these to your baking plans asap!
