Chewy Chocolate Ginger-Molasses Cookies

A combination of fresh and ground ginger, molasses, and chunks of semisweet chocolate makes the cookies sophisticated enough for adults but chocolaty enough for children.

    I've had this recipe, from the magazine, for years. Wonderful flavor; just wish it made more per batch so I didn't have to multiply by 1.5. As one comment said, the magazine recipe calls for 1/4 Cup molasses, which is what I used. I brought the unbaked dough with me on a visit to my son and looked up this recipe to be sure I set the oven temp and the timer correctly. GREAT cookie! Make it every Christmas.

    After the first time I made these I've gotten asked to make them at least every couple of months. Everyone asks for the recipe. Definitely one of my favorite cookies. They come out best with either Valrhona or Michel Cluizel chocolate.

      I love this recipe! The online version is different then the print version from 1997. I messed up three batches of cookies because online says 1/2 cup molasses. The print version says 1/4 cup. My sister made the print version and the cookies are perfect. I made the online version and they are flat and crispy. Only use 1/4 cup molasses!!!
