Great with a nice tall glass of cold milk :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These are easy to make chewy gingerbread cookies. They taste just like Christmas with their touch of molasses and a perfect blend of spices. The batter is soft, but don't be dismayed. Just gently roll the balls and dip into the white sugar. Pop them in the oven and in minutes you have the perfect treat for the holidays. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
