‘Tis the season to spread some joy. What better way to spread joy than with deliciously sweet vegan chewy ginger molasses cookies for dessert?

I have an amazing family. My dad’s side of the family has 9 siblings. They all got married and had children giving me 28 first cousins. We all love getting together for Christmas and all of the other holidays. Well, now that the grandkids are all grown up and getting married and having kids of their own our family is growing to become too large to all fit in one house these days. So for the past three years, we have started a new tradition of having a girls gift exchange where all the girls get all dressed up, fight over gifts, have some holiday drinks, and enjoy each others company.

This year I’ve volunteered to bring a dessert. I’m having a difficult time picking just one dessert to bring. However, I’ve decided vegan chewy ginger molasses cookies are a must.

TIP: Use silicone baking mats for best results. If you don’t have the mats the next best thing is to use cooking parchment paper with wax paper.
