Sunny Anderson's Ginger-Molasses Cookies — 12 Days of Cookies
It’s time for 12 Days of Cookies, Food Network’s annual virtual cookie swap. Each day, visit us here on FN Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques from your favorite Food Network chefs for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep.
Buttery, chewy and perfectly spiced, Sunny Anderson's Ginger-Molasses Cookies are just the recipe to round out your holiday cookie tray. "These are my knockoff of my fave chewy spiced cookie at a local bakery in Park Slope, Brooklyn, called Naidre's," says The Kitchen co-host. "They are perfect for a frosty glass of milk. If you ever make it to my area, check them out; until then, enjoy the baking!" Remember to dust the cookies in sugar before baking — this helps to create a gingerbread-like crunch on the outside. Add the crown jewel — a piece of crystallized ginger — when the cookies are still warm from the oven.
