OLD FASHIONED SOFT MOLASSES COOKIES

This recipe was originally posted on November 8, 2017!  The recipe stays the same and most people have had great success with it.  The reason I am revamping and republishing this is that I have written a more thorough post to answer readers questions! WHAT DO MOLASSES COOKIES TASTE LIKE? Molasses cookies have a very distinct spice flavor.  This comes from the use of ground cinnamon and ginger, as well as the rich flavor of dark molasses. They taste somewhat like a gingersnap cookie, however, they are more subtle and soft instead of crisp.
HOW TO MAKE MOLASSES COOKIES:
  • Start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees.  You will want to line a large baking sheet with parchment paper for best results.  If you don’t have parchment paper, you can use non-stick cooking spray.
  • You can use a large bowl with a hand-held mixer, or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment for this recipe.
  • Start by beating together your butter, brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and molasses until well combined.  This will take about 2-3 minutes.
  • Next, you can add your flour, baking soda, salt, and spices right into the mixer and mix just for about 1 minute until the dough comes together.
  • Shape your dough into balls that are about 1 1/2 inches.  You can do this with your hands, a Tablespoon measure, or a cookie scoop.  Whatever is easier for you!
  • Roll the dough balls in granulated sugar and then place on the baking sheet 2 inches apart.
  • These cookies will bake for 13-15 minutes.  As soon as they come out of the oven you will want to scoop them up with a spatula and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
