Recipe Corner: Molasses Cookies

Those who know me best know that cookies are my weakness. These molasses cookies are so soft and chewy, there is no way to just eat one.  I am trying to decide which type of cookies to bake for our cookie exchange and these are definitely in the running.

Do you have a mouthwatering recipe you would like to recommend? Shoot me an email at  and I can post it for all to enjoy!

• 3/4 cup margarine, melted
• 1 cup white sugar 
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup molasses
• 2 cups all-purpose flour
• 2 teaspoons baking soda 
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves (I sometimes leave out the cloves and add extra cinnamon)
• 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
• 1/2 cup white sugar


1. In a medium bowl, mix together the melted margarine, 1 cup sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger; blend into the molasses mixture. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until tops are cracked. Cool on wire racks. (a few minutes less for chewy cookies and few minutes more for crispy cookies)
