These eggless ginger cookies are soft and slightly chewy on the day it’s made. If the weather is humid, then it becomes more chewy the next day.

Serving suggestion: Enjoy this anytime of the day. The best way to eat is with a glass of milk.

Notes:

  • To get nice flavor of spices, make sure that your ground spices are fresh. As you know that ground spices has very short shelf life. If spices are not fresh then cookies will taste flat.
  • I have used unsulphured molasses. There is also sulphured molasses available in the market. But I recommend to use unsulphured which has nice flavor and lighter in color.
  • Molasses is sticky liquid like honey. So lightly grease or spray your measuring cup before pouring in the molasses, so it does not stick to the cup.
  • There are few substitutes for molasses if it is not available where you live, but you will miss the flavor. You can use same amount of honey or maple syrup or dark corn syrup.
  • Alternately, heat ⅓ cup of light or dark brown sugar or jaggery + 1 ⅓ tablespoons of water till it is melted and heated through. Let it cool completely. Use this syrup in place of molasses.
  • If you want more ginger flavor than you can add some finely chopped candied or crystallized ginger. It gives you the extra punch of ginger flavor.
