Soft & Chewy Molasses Cookies

Apparently I failed again and didn't take any photos of these cookies?! This one is from Food.com
Ginger is not a flavor that's just for Christmas anymore. Haven't you heard? :) There's nothing like some delicious, soft & chewy molasses cookies any time of the year. These particular cookies have a really strong flavor from the molasses. I think they tasted great & had the perfect texture- so  chewy- no crunch in sight! You can always tone down the molasses if you want a weaker flavor. Grab a glass of milk and give half away before you sit down on your couch or you will eat them all & have no idea why you can't stop... that's my last warning. :)



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.

Enjoy!
