for thanksgiving i made these ginger-molasses cookies for my friends, really happy how they turned out, soft and chewy with a hint of ginger. not to mention they made my house smell warm and lovely. for recipes like this one i love using my blendtec, throw everything in and blend it up! though the batter is pretty thick, i think i may have made my blender work a little too hard! opps :P
