In case you're not familiar with the cause, Cookies for Kids' Cancer was founded by two OXO employees who were "inspired by their son Liam's battle with pediatric cancer, a disease which claims the lives of more children in the US than any other disease. Cookies for Kids' Cancer provides inspiration and support to allow anyone to easily get involved in fundraising to find a cure for pediatric cancer."
Dorie's Cookies has over 200 recipes to inspire you, and today I'm sharing a thick, chewy molasses cookie that packs a double punch of ginger...and can be made in muffin tins! Plus it infuses your house with the warm, cozy scent of the holiday season.
The recipe calls for powdered ginger and candied ginger. I normally keep some candied ginger on hand, but I was out and couldn't get my hands on any locally. But Dorie came to the rescue with her suggestion of mixing grated fresh ginger with sugar and letting it become a bit syrupy if you don't have any candied ginger. I'll be using that method anytime I don't have any on hand going forward.
These would make a beautiful addition to any holiday cookie tray—the height and heft will add interest, while the familiar spicy molasses flavor screams tradition. Oh, and did I mention there's also chocolate?
