Sugar and spice and everything nice! That's how you'll find these really good old-fashioned molasses cookies adapted from a recipe by the Naborhood Bakery located in Gardner Village of West Jordan, Utah
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1⁄4 cup molasses
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ginger
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon clove
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- Cream butter and sugar together; stir in egg, molasses and vanilla; combine and gradually add dry ingredients (add a couple more tablespoons flour if your dough seems too soft) then stir until completely mixed.
- Roll dough into 1 1/4" balls; roll each ball of dough in granulated sugar and place on a greased baking sheet.
- For soft & chewy cookies, bake at 375° for 8 minutes or just until edges start to turn golden-brown; for crisper cookies, bake for up to 10 minutes; allow cookies to remain on baking sheet for a couple minutes after they come out of the oven; remove cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Just like grandmama's except easier. Thank you!
WOW!!!! This is the most AMAZING recipe!! By far the best molasses cookies I have had in my entire life! Thanks for a great recipee Deb!
Five stars! These are the perfect cookies, perfect shape, texture, taste. I used Full flavor molasses and only made a half batch. I did the first tray for 8 minutes and the second for 10, I think I prefer the softer batch but I like both. It actually made the amount of cookies it says it makes too.
