Make Ahead Tips
To freeze these ahead, put the sugared dough balls on a tray in the freezer until they’re rock-hard and then stash them in zip-top bags. When it’s time to bake, arrange them on cookie sheets and let them thaw while the oven heats up.
These are Fantastic! I made these for a fundraiser, and people said they were the best cookie they had ever had! I froze the uncooked dough balls and then just baked them off as needed after they came back to room temperature. Recipe doubles and triples easily. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. The combination of ginger, cinnamon, cloves & molasses gave the cookie great flavor. Even people who said they didn't like ginger cookies Loved these and came back for more. Shelf life was a good week. Perfect.
