This is technically a gingersnap recipe, but these cookies come out really soft, so they are more like gingerbread cookies. I made them Monday and they are so good. :)

Because of the molasses, the dough for this is pretty sticky. I definitely recommend a cookie scoop if you've got one in order to prevent very messy fingers from trying to get the dough off a regular spoon.
