One of my favorite cookies were the soft molasses cookies they use to sell in the bag with the white icing on top. As a kid we didn't get them very often, but I loved it when we did. Over the years they were harder to find. So when I was visiting Pennsylvania several years ago I visited an Amish Bakery. They had the most amazing baked goods! I was so excited when I found the Molasses cookies! I savored each bite! When I got home I searched for a recipe that would be similar to that amazing flavor I loved. I finally found one. This recipe makes the most amazing soft ginger molasses cookies. They come out of the oven crispy on the outside and soft in the middle. I dare say they are even better the next day!

**I love to bake! One tip I have learned is when I am using honey, corn syrup or Molasses try spraying your measuring cup first with baking spray. Your ingredient will slip right out to the measuring cup without a mess!
