The pros: Trader Joe's Gingerbread Molasses Cookie Dough are the quickest cookies you can get short of buying them already cooked. They were done in under 15 minutes. They had that true gingersnap texture. There is a very nice spice beyond just ginger.
The cons: The package contains 12 cookies. If you need more than that you'll need to pick up a few of these.
The verdict: For $2.99, these were as easy as it gets. If you don't already have all the ingredients lined up to make gingerbread, then this may represent a savings as opposed to stocking up on all the various ingredients and spices that these use. Sadly, this is likely a seasonal item so if you try it and like it you'll need to stock up before they go away for the season.

Would I buy this again? Yes. I hadn't noticed these before but in all likelihood they are seasonal items. If you love them you'll need to stock up and tuck them in your freezer (for up to 6 months). They are everything you look for in a ginger cookie: spice, snap and subtle sweetness. Very tasty and each makes a nice sized cookie.
