GINGER MOLASSES COOKIES
It is always a good idea to bake up some homemade cookies! Always! Especially this time of year, when the cooler weather begins to set in. These Soft and Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies are perfect for Fall Weather Baking and for Holiday Parties!
On Sunday afternoons, we love to bake and this past Sunday we all decided that these Molasses Cookies would be perfect.
CHEWY GINGER MOLASSES COOKIES
This recipe reminds me of growing up and is the recipe my mom used to make for us when we were kids. She always let us roll the cookies in the sugar and place them on the cookie sheets. I am sure we were more of a hindrance than a help to her and the progress of the cookie baking…but we always felt like we were great helpers in the kitchen.
These cookies are the perfect combination of soft and chewy! You can also add a tasty Sugar Glaze to the cookies if you would like to, but it is optional and they taste just as great without it. We like to dust them after they have soaked and cooled with some confectioners sugar too. But sometimes it is nice to fancy them up a bit if you are taking them to a Holiday Party.

- 1 1/2 cups Shortening Butter Flavored Crisco
- 2 cups Sugar
- 1⁄2 cup Molasses
- 2 Eggs
- 4 tsp. Baking Soda
- 41⁄2 cups Flour
- 1 tsp. Cloves
- 1 tsp. Ginger
- 2 tsp. Cinnamon 1 tsp. Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Milk
- confectioner's sugar for dusting cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a mixer, cream together shortening, sugar, molasses and eggs until smooth and creamy.
Add in the rest of the dry ingredients and mix well.
Pour in the milk to give the dough some moisture.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and then roll them in sugar if not frosting them with the icing glaze.
Place cookies on greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes. Do NOT overbake unless you want Gingersnaps.
Let cool on wire racks.
Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving.
They freeze well, so they are perfect to make ahead of time and freeze for later. Then all you need to do is pull them out and let them thaw before serving…although I have been known to sneak them out of the freezer and eat them right then and there!
