Spiced Ginger Coffee- My first Taste of Home Tuesday Recipe & Review!

Fall is my favorite time of year.   The leaves are changing, the mornings are cool and crisp.   I love starting these days with a nice hot cup of coffee.  I'm a huge ginger fan, especially combined with molasses.   This reminds me of a gingerbread-style beverage I got from a chain restaurant around the holidays.   I had mine with cream, because it was what I had on hand, but definitely will be picking up whipped cream for future servings.   Because I'm the only coffee drinker, I froze about half the mixture in 2 teaspoon servings in an ice cube tray.   When they were solid, I popped them out and put them into a ziptop bag.   I'll defrost them for hot coffee use, or I may play around with them in an iced coffee version.   Thanks so much to the hard working people at the Taste of Home Test Kitchen for sharing this recipe!
