Hot Pepper Ginger Molasses Cookies.

This is a very good cookie recipe great anytime. They’re a good cookie for your cookie platter during the holidays. They’re so good with a big glass of cold milk. If you love milk like I do. The pepper adds a nice hot and spicy flavor to the cookie. 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.
