A spicy molasses cookie that tastes great with a glass of ice cold milk (or just dipped into a cup of hot coffee).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar, molasses and egg. Sift together flour, baking soda, spices and stir them into creamed mixture. Place in refrigerator for 1/2 to 3/4 of an hour to cool dough.
  2. Scoop dough up by the teaspoonful, roll into little balls, and roll balls in granulated sugar.
  3. Place them on greased baking sheets 2 inches apart to accommodate spreading.
  4. Bake at 350F for 12 minutes, or until cookies are flat. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from sheets.

These are addictive little suckers! ;) My "normal" molasses cookies are soft and thicker .... these are a great change!! They go excellent with a nice fresh cup of coffee! Thanks for posting!!

With the first pan I made I forgot to chill the dough so the cookies really spread out when baked, so I chilled the dough and the remaining cookes baked out nicely. I did increased the cloves and the giner, thanks Ev, great cookies!..Kitten:)
