EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Shannon Bills from Indio, CA created this recipe for a Celebrate the Season Holiday Cookie Contest.

"I love gingerbread cookies, but I am a sucker for chewy cookies, which most gingerbread cookies are not. So I devised this recipe and came up with the most delicious, moist and chewy gingerbread cookies ever. You will be sure to make these every year! We make these every Christmas Eve and they rarely last a day past Christmas!" Shannon Bills

Look for cooking parchment paper with the waxed paper, foil and plastic wrap at the grocery store. Silicone baking mats are becoming widely available and are now sold in a variety of stores.

You can use light or dark molasses in this recipe.
