These are delicious and soft cookies. I especially like to make them around the holidays, but they are great anytime. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law.

What a great cookie! I thought they seemed really familiar when I started gathering ingredients - sure enough, they are almost the same as my favorite molasses cookie, but with a bit more spice. I did refrigerate the dough briefly to make it easier to handle, and I baked on parchment paper. These are yummy and beautiful; these will be a Christmas favorite!
