    Gingerbread without molasses? What is this blasphemy?

    Corn syrup is gross. I always use molasses (and brown sugar, but definitely molasses).

    ETA, my favorite ginger cookies are these triple ginger cookies. OMG SO GOOD. Sometimes, I use butter instead of shortening since shortening kind of freaks me out.

    Ew!  Corn syrup is gross and bad for you!  Molasses on the other hand, is super good for you!

    Oh goodness, really? Corn syrup in homemade cookies?!? Never.

    I’ve always used molasses in gingerbread.
