chewy molasses cookies

December 28, 2012

Last year at about this time, I made cookies like these for my molasses-cookie-loving friend.


Chewy molasses cookies perfect for curing homesickness while I was in Europe.


This time around, they’re still spicy, crackly, and chewy. But even better. And still so sparkly!


Actually…possibly sparklier. Always a good thing.


Except this time around, I’m happily writing from home sweet home.


While planning a trip to Europe. (!!!) With my molasses-cookie friend.


Things coming full circle = freaks me out.

Chewy Molasses Cookies
Adapted from Sweet Little Details

1/4 cup butter (half a stick)
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/8 teaspoons baking soda
1 and 1/8 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon allspice
granulated sugar to roll the dough

Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and blend thoroughly

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, and sugars.

Beat in molasses and egg.

Gradually blend in the flour mixture until dough is smooth.

Chill dough (I personally prefer overnight)

Roll dough into heaping tablespoons and roll into granulated sugar.

Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350. Cool completely on wire rack.

I had no idea that I liked molasses cookies until trying them for the first time 2 years ago…and now I look forward to them every Christmas. I’m so cookied-out right now, but I think I could make an exception for a few of these! They look delicious!

I made these for a friend because I’m still not sure if I love molasses cookies… but you’d def love them if you’re a fan! hope you had a wonderful Christmas! 🙂 🙂
