Old-fashioned flavor with a modern kick. Molasses, ginger, and vanilla combine to create a year-round chewy molasses treat reminiscent of crisp fall days, perfect with a glass of ice-cold milk.
I received a packet of these cookies in my December Love with Food box.
Because these cookies had a sweet and spicy taste to them, I wanted to go with a pure black tea that would allow me to experience the flavors within the cookies. I chose this Golden Yunnan from In Pursuit of Tea, and together the cookies and tea made for a really delicious tea time treat.
What I Think:
These soft, delicious molasses cookies are the perfect cookie for this time of year. It just tastes like Christmastime … it tastes like the holidays. They are sweet and spicy, not quite as spicy as gingerbread cookies, but there are notes of ginger in these that provide a nice little kick.
I like the texture of these cookies. The cookie itself is soft, but the sugar crystals on top of the cookie (they appear to have been “rolled” in raw sugar) give a little bit of crackly crunch to each bite. There is a bit of a zesty, peppery bite to the cookies, but, the spice is countered by the sweetness of the molasses.
My Final Thoughts:
Like I said before: these cookies taste like the holidays. They were a delicious addition to my Love with Food box for December. These cookies are definitely something I’d consider purchasing again!
