This molasses cookies recipe is one of my holiday favorites, and I bet it will be one of yours too!
I love the holiday baking season. I think I made or baked at least 2 batches of cookies every day last week. It’s a good thing I know a lot of people to give them to or I would have a serious situation on my hands. Like I need that stuff laying around the house. I am trying to cut back on my sweets you know. ????
I’ve only made these cookies a few times. No particular reason really, I just always forget about them. I make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies a lot, but I can never seem to remember that I love my molasses cookies so much! I know my Mom loves them too, so since I was going to see her over the weekend, I decided to make a few dozen to bring down!
These are really pretty simple to make, but if you don’t let the dough chill before baking them, then you will end up with a drippy dough. That can be easily fixed though. Just pop the bowl in the refrigerator for an hour and you will be ready to scoop the dough.
You don’t want to know how many times I have done that ????
Also, take them out of the oven about a minute before the time is up. Especially if you like a softer cookie like I do.
