Molasses Cookies

Today we release another delicious dessert. These are a bit like moist gingersnaps, only better. Make sure to taste-test the dough as well...this is always a necessity when making cookies.

Stack of Molasses Cookies we made at Lisa's parents' house summer 2009
Molasses Cookies
yields about 5 dozen cookies
2 cups oil
3 cups sugar
3 eggs
3/4 cup molasses
6 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp ginger
A little more sugar, in which to roll cookies
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine ingredients above. We add flour last. The recipe we have suggests adding the molasses last.
  3. Roll cookie dough into 1.5" balls; roll these in sugar. Place on baking sheet and bake for about 9 minutes.
  4. Let cool; enjoy; share with your neighbors!
