Eggless Gingerbread Cookies that are soft, chewy and oh so easy to bake and enjoy. These cookies are packed with all of your favourite fall spices. I made these gingerbread cookies without molasses.
Bake these for the holidays and share it as beautifully packed edible gifts with your friends and family.
Usually I make these cookies using the Molasses substitute that I make around the holiday season, so that I can use it in my baking. But since I have not been home a lot this season, I decided to skip using molasses substitute and went with the most easiest substitute.
I have used my hand mixer to cream the butter and raw cane sugar together because, well I had it but rarely use it and wanted to make sure that it is still up and running. If you do not have one, then just use a whisk and do it manually.
