Molasses Cookie Recipe

I made these today, and I figured before I put the recipe away I should post it :-). There's nothing "Christmasy" about these cookies, so I have no idea why they are a Christmas tradition, but they are good.

Molasses Cookies
Makes about 4 dz Cook 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees

3/4 C Melted Butter
1 C sugar
1/4 C Molasses

Combine above and then add

1 egg

Beat well and add

2 tsp baking soda
1C flour
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

Mix together and then add

1 more C of flour

Mix well

Chill 1 hour

Roll into 1" balls and roll each ball in sugar to coat. Place 2" apart on greased cookie sheet (or ungreased stoneware). Remove from oven when cookies start to flatten.

Pin It!

I'm a happy girl...thank you for posting this. Oh...I meant to tell you...I made your "pumpkin stuff" for Christmas and FORGOT THE EGGS. See why I don't normally bake? Anywho, it STILL turned out great and was a hit. :)

Thanks for posting the recipe. I'll have to try it with my GF flour. I guess I'll never know if they're as good as yours, will I? I'll let you know how it goes....
