Delicious Ginger Molasses Cookies withTanya from twelveOeight shares a WONDERFUL recipe!!! These molasses cookies are delicious. A real treat for everyone!
Hi DIY Dreamers! I am excited to share one of my favorite go to recipes for the holiday season, Ginger Molasses Cookies. My name is Tanya and you can find me most days knee deep in sandpaper, hot glue and toddlers at my little corner of blogland twelveOeight. A spot for making pretty things on a budget.
These cookies are super easy and turn out a little chewy with just enough spice to make them delish. They make great gifts too, wrapped in some cellophane and baker’s twine. I like to make treat baskets every year for neighbors and friends that include some fresh cookies, and our favorite holiday drink mixes. We are making Orange Spice Cider, Chai Latte, and Mocha mixes, which are so easy to make and fill mason jars for gift-giving. Hop on over to grab the recipes for the drink mixes if you plan to make some kitchen gifts this year. I will warn you, once you make these, you will get requests for them every year! Now let’s make some cookies…
Ginger Molasses Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen
2 cups flour (Gluten Free flour can be used as well, I like Bob’s Red Mill)
1 T. ground ginger
2 t. baking soda
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup white sugar
Preheat oven at 350*, and blend flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, blend butter, sugar, and molasses well, add egg, and blend again. Combine the butter mixture and flour mixture and blend well, dough will be fairly thick. Form each cookie by using a small teaspoonful of dough and shape into a ball before rolling in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place 2″ apart on an un-greased cookie sheet, and bake approximately 8-10 minutes or until edges are golden. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet before removing them to cool on your counter top. These store well for quite a few days in a sealed container, but they don’t usually last that long!
