chewy molasses-spice cookies...yes please!

i stumbled across this recipe on the front page of msn a month or so back.  it's from 
delish, who featured it from martha stewart

i thought it sounded delicious and very fall/winter like, so i tried it out.  i have to say it didn't disappoint.  i love when a recipe is actually as good as it sounds and as the picture looks!

felt, i better share!


  • preheat oven to 350'
  • in a med bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp bkg soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp salt
  • with an electric mixer, beat 3/4 cup butter and 1 cup sugar until combined
  • beat in 1 egg and then 1/4 cup molasses
  • reduce speed to low, gradually mix in dry ingredients, just until a dough forms
  • roll dough into balls, approx 1 tablespoon.  roll balls in shallow dish containing approx 1/4 cup sugar.  coat evenly
  • arrange balls on baking sheets.  bake one sheet at a time.  bake 10 - 12 mins.  

you can bake two sheets at a time but they will not 'crack' uniformly

sooooo good, crispy on the edges and soft and chewy on the NOT overbake
