Molasses and Ginger Buttercream Sandwich Cookies

My dear friend, LB, has molasses cookies mastered! Even though she is not a vegan, she is such a thoughtful baker and always considers the health and preferences of her friends when in the kitchen! I tied my hand at the recipe I copied from a scrap of paper in her legume-filled, berry-stained, sprouted, Michigan kitchen but I must have mixed something up because my cookies came out much poofier and lighter in color than hers. I'll have to try again!

I whipped up a spicy buttercream frosting with some earth balance, soymilk, confectioner's sugar, vanilla, and a heaping teaspoon of ground ginger, assembled the sandwiches, and took them to the printshop with me. These sandwiches looked perfect with inked-up knuckles and the arm's newly-acquired collection of vintage wood type.

Stay tuned for a complete recipe for these little darlings!
With joy,


  1. Yummmmm. Molasses moonpies! The cookies come out differently every time I make them, so you probably did nothing wrong.

  2. These are beautiful!
