Don’t get TOO excited – these cookies are not to be confused with our other famous cookies that we make a la the Starbucks Ginger Molasses Cookies which will remain in the vault (you know, like a Disney classic) but they are however the ones that we use for all of our Holiday Cookie decorating.  The right blend of “hard enough” to decorate but “soft enough” to actually eat – how’s that for a tagline 😉 .

You’re going to want to save this one to your inbox for quick reference this Holiday Season!



  • 2 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda

  1. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, salt and cloves – set aside.

  3. Reduce speed to low, continue beating while gradually adding flour mixture and scraping bowl often until well mixed.

He's the youngest of 3. He lives a sweet life - especially having an older sister who bakes from scratch on a daily basis. I'm pretty sure he considers licking spatulas a food group on its own. He was my game changer and in many ways a miracle that came into my life exactly when I needed him to (um for the record - I was totally 100% convinced he was a girl - like bedroom decorated just based on intuition ). Sometimes you need a moment, or something or someone to show up and be that sign you are waiting for ❤️ || #love #momlife #momof3
