[Ginger Molasses Cookies. AKA - Spice Cookies.]

This recipe comes from a book that I bought up in Whistler on our honeymoon.  I had wanted to buy something that would last through the years - and although i haven't made all the recipes, many of them are in my repertoire ... 

These are the most perfect cookie.  Crunchy and sweet on the outside, chewy on the inside ... a family fave for sure.  (not my image, but they look ExACTly like this).
