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 inside.....do NOT overbake



  1. Those look delicious! I'll have to try that recipe.

  2. These are a staple this time of the year in our home, I looove them!! And it is OK to have them with coffee in the am too since there is cinnamon in them...at least that is what I tell myself. :P

    Enjoy the heat wave we are in for this week!

  3. mmm... molasses cookies are my all-time fave and chewy is best! I'll definitely be giving these a try :)
