Cooking Up Some...Soft Molasses Cookies

Soft Molasses Cookies
Grandma Doris

3/4 c softened butter or margarine
3/4 c white sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c milk
3/4 c molasses
4 c sifted all-purpose flour
2 t baking soda
1 t ground ginger
1/2 t ground cloves
1 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1 t salt
1/4 c powdered sugar

Cream butter and white sugar in a large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs, milk and molasses. Sift together flour, baking soda, spices, and salt in a medium mixing bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well. Drop by spoonful or roll to 1/4" thick and cut with floured cookie cutters and place on cookie sheet(s). Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool and dust with powdered sugar.

Notes: If the batter seems too "wet", add a little more flour. You can also add raisins to the batter and bake as well. Or make small cookie sandwiches with can vanilla or cream cheese frosting.

  1. YUM! I need to get some molasses....

  2. I love molasses cookies. Love. Them. But no one else in the family does, so I don't bake them often. 8-) Now I'm really craving one! LOL
