These molasses cookies are the perfect mix of chewy and full of flavor. A classic cookie that will never go out of style, they are a great addition to any food spread.
Day 8 of 12 Days of Cookies is here! I can’t believe we’re more than half way through the series… time sure flies when you’re having fun baking cookies! Today’s cookie is a classic. It’s one of those cookies that can be served year round but the flavors just go so perfectly with the holiday season.
I’m talking about Molasses Cookies. Timeless. Classic. Delicious.
Last month I made a different version of the molasses cookie, but it was one of my husband’s most favorite cookies I’ve ever made. It was a big thicker than today’s recipe and covered in white chocolate. Super yum.
These molasses cookies are the classic recipe made with rich, thick molasses, sugar and 3 different spices. The recipe is really a simple one and could easily be made even if you didn’t have a stand mixer. Because the butter in this recipe is melted, a hand mixer or a sturdy whisk could be used to mix the ingredients together making the preparation even simpler!
Molasses cookies make a great afternoon snack with coffee or a glass of milk. Personally, I like to throw two in a ziploc bag before I head out to run errands and munch on them on-the-go! They’d also make a great addition to a pot-luck dessert table, Christmas cookie exchange or as dessert served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I also thought a scoop of vanilla ice cream would go amazingly between two of these molasses cookies to make an ice cream cookie sandwich. Hmmm… I think I just gave myself a new blog post idea for next summer! Doesn’t that sound seriously amazing? YUM!
We’ve only 4 more cookies to go for the 12 Days of Cookies… so make sure to come back tomorrow for the next recipe!
