Soft & Chew Molasses Cookies
Recipe adapted from Food.com
Makes about 40 cookies
- 3/4 cup butter-flavored shortening
- 1 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 2 1/2 cups AP flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- white sugar for rolling dough in
Cream brown sugar & shortening in mixing bowl.
Add egg and molasses & mix well.
Fold in dry ingredients & mix well.
Cover mixing bowl with plastic wrap and chill dough in fridge for 1-2 hours or until firm. Don't skip this step or your dough will be too sticky to work with & the flavors won't come together as nicely.
Preheat oven to 350. Roll dough into small balls & roll in bowl of white sugar.
Place on parchment-covered baking sheet & bake 9-10 minutes. Let cookies set for 1 minute on baking sheet before moving to cooling rack to cool completely. Store in an air-tight container.
