MOLASSES COOKIE RECIPE
Cookies are one of our favorite Holiday treats! This Molasses Cookie Recipe is in my top five cookie recipes. They are so full of flavor and taste amazing! They are one holiday classic that we make every single Christmas…but they are good any time of the year!
These Molasses Cookies are the perfect chewy cookie and always turn out amazing! You might need to make a double or a triple batch though, because they don’t last long when we put them out for our holiday guests! If you want to be sure to get some, make a batch and hide it for yourself!
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!
