The aroma of cinnamon and ginger is a wonderful way to get into the stay-at-home spirit. This delicious cookie recipe is from Myra Goodman’s first cookbook, Food to Live By. Myra says the cookies are even more outrageously good with jam. You can also add peanut butter to one side and make peanut butter and jelly sandwich cookies.

¼ cup molasses
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. ground ginger
