Molasses Sugar Cookies

Here is a recipe for molasses cookies that I really like. It came from my mom, and I don't know where she got it. I made them for a church activity and got some requests for the recipe, so I just thought I'd post it here and force my friends to read my blog (hwaa ha ha)(that's my evil laugh, in case you couldn't tell)

1/2 cup butter + 1/4 cup shortening (that's the combo I like to use. do whatever you like)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour (the recipe I have calls for 2 cups, but I find a little more flour is good.)
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. salt

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in molasses and egg until fluffy. Stir in dry ingredients. Chill. Form into balls (I just use my cookies scoop) and roll in granulated sugar. Bake on parchment paper lined pan at 325 degrees for 10 - 12 minutes. Cool. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.


  1. This recipe actually came from the back of a molasses bottle, but I haven't seen the recipe in years. It's a good one!
