Chewy Molasses Cookies // A Calculated Whisk 

Do you hear that? Christmas music is now in every store, twinkly lights are romantically illuminating streets and houses, and our kitchens are cozy, warm, and ready for action: The holidays are officially here.

We are still early to the game — it is only Dec. 2, after all — but that doesn’t mean we can’t start scheduling plans for cookie swaps, planning cookie decorating extravaganzas, and crafting holiday gifts for friends, neighbors, and co-workers. So when it is time to bake some delicious cookies up for Santa and his reindeer — because Santa can’t have stale cookies — you’ll know exactly which holiday cookie is your favorite.
