Ginny’s Spicy Molasses Cookies

12 Days of Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange

These molasses cookies remind me of cookie treats that I used to enjoy at my Pépère’s house when I was young.

Ginny’s Spicy Molasses Cookies

1 ½ cups flour (all-purpose)
1 cup wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 egg
½ cup molasses
½ cup granulated sugar (for rolling dough balls in)

  1. In medium mixing bowl thoroughly combine flours, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In large mixing bowl, with electric mixer, beat butter and brown sugar together until creamy and fluffy. Add egg and molasses and beat until totally blended, about 1 minute.
  3. Add the flour and spice mixture to the creamed items until combined. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 to 2 hours (or overnight if you wish) until dough is firm.
  4. When dough is firm, preheat oven to 350 F.
  5. Roll about a tablespoon of dough into balls. Then roll dough balls in your ½ cup of sugar to coat. Place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart and flatten balls slightly with the bottom of a glass.
  6. Bake cookies for 10-15 minutes, or until the top of the cookies look crinkled and have cracks. (cookies may not look done, but will harden as the cool.)
  7. Cool on cookie sheets for about 1-2 minutes then move to cooling racks to cool completely.
