I absolutely love soft and chewy cookies, especially when they are ginger-spiced, and stuffed full of chocolate chips. These are seriously the best chewy ginger cookies I’ve ever had, and you are going to LOVE them!

Another quick and easy cookie recipe here that is full of ginger and molasses flavour. Simply whisk together the wet ingredients, then fold in the dry ingredients. Roll the dough into balls, place them on a baking tray, and stud them with more chocolate chips. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes, then leave to cool completely (or eat one warm!).

Go make yourself a tea or coffee, and grab a cookie or two. 😉

These soft and chewy ginger cookies are the most perfect cookies for gifting at the holidays. And who doesn’t love being gifted cookies? These cookies also stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to a week!

What I love about these cookies is that you don’t need to chill the dough before baking. You can roll the dough into balls and bake straight away! If you like your cookies extra thick, you can freeze the dough balls on the baking tray for about 10 – 15 minutes before baking.

    These cookies look so yummy! I bet that molasses makes them wonderfully sweet and a little chewy. Yum!

    Oh gosh, Marsha… these cookies look absolutely amazing!! It’s seriously so great that you don’t have to chill these either. 🙂 Does it get any more easy or elegant than this? Definitely not! These would be so perfect for gift-giving this holiday season. Or… just for eating all by oneself. Hehe. 😉 Pinning and sharing, of course. Happy Monday, Marsha! 🙂

    Soft and chewy cookies are my favorite too. And these sound just like my kind of cookie. I don’t know why the chocolate and ginger combo isn’t more of a big deal in baking. It tastes soooo good!

    I cannot express how excited I am to try these! I am a sucker for ginger-molasses cookies but have never found a chewy recipe that I love, so I always settle for the pre-made dough at Trader Joes! With the added chocolate chips, these are sure to be my new favorite winter cookie!

    I have a family recipe that my mom made for years. You know those treasured keepsakes…childhood memory food. I bet it would taste even better with the addition of these chocolate chips. Your cookies look and sound amazing. I love “ginger”!!
