Chewy Molasses Spice Cookies

molasses cookies

There is nothing more delicious than a warm, chewy molasses cookie.  This cookie will give you a warm snuggly feeling. The molasses paired with the spices is perfect for the fall season. The chewiness of the cookie will allow you to savor every bite of this delectable treat. I have tried several recipes, before perfecting this one. These cookies have cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and cloves. Molasses balances out the spices in the cookie, and adds a perfect backdrop for the spices. The best part of these cookies though, is the beautiful aroma that will fill your home as they bake.

2 1/4 cups flour
2 oz, or 1/4 cup butter at room temperature
4 oz, or 1/2 cup shortening at room temperature
1/3 cup molasses
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup white sugar for rolling cookie dough in


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter, shortening, and sugar. Sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and spices. Add molasses and egg to creamed butter and sugar. Mix until light and fluffy.

Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Then take teaspoons of dough and roll in sugar and in the palm of your hand to make little balls. Place on un-greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees until just firm. Do not over-bake. They should be browned, but look underdone when removed from oven. They will firm up when cooled. For a crisp cookie, cook longer.
