cindy's Story

I LOVE molasses cookies. Was trying to come up with a way to make them more "special" for the holidays and thought of sandwich cookies. The cream filling is not too sweet and the crystallized ginger the perfect special touch!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
The combination of flavors in these cookie is just sooo good! Each cookie also has a lovely crystalline coating that is sure to brighten anyone's day. The Kitchen Crew - including yours truly - couldn't stop eating them.

Kathleen...it's just "candied" ginger. You can get it in just about any grocery store. Usually somewhere around the produce aisles. I've never made it myself, but it should be pretty easy. Here's a recipe I found...homecooking.about.com/...lginger.htm

I had only made them once before for my mom and sister to see what they were like and made such a big hit with them and me that I decided they might net me a medal in senior games and boy was I right. Cooking has become a wonderful time for me in the last few years. I can't believe that I had to become older to enjoy it. Thanks.
