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!

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.
