Soft and Spicy Easy Pepper Ginger Molasses Cookie Recipe.
Hot Pepper Ginger Molasses Cookies.
This is a very good cookie recipe. They’re a great cookie for your cookie platter during the holidays. My family enjoys them. They often ask me to make them. They’re so good with a big glass of cold milk. If you love milk like I do. The pepper adds a nice flavor to the cookies just hot and spicy enough to taste great. Easy to make just roll in a ball and bake.
We do not frost these cookies but there is a frosting at the bottom you can use if you feel they need frosting.
