Molasses Cookies

molasses-cookies (2)

Last night I didn’t make it to Fiesta Friday since I was at the formal ceremony for my brother’s graduation. Remember last week when I made the deviled eggs for his party? Well, this week it was cookies for the ceremony. Lots of grad stuff! Anyways, I know these were for the ceremony, but since it does make 60 cookies, I snuck a few and my sister did too…he-he some of the reasons we always cook in bulk! 🙂

Also, Move update: we are still looking for a house and trying to sell ours. We have had two showing though, which is good! Our dad is moving down next week and we are hoping to follow him down the next month. Overall it is chaotic, exciting, and sad all at the same time…


Now, the recipe for these cookies! I got them from my amazing friends the S’s! They have so many great recipes!

Molasses Cookies


1 1/2 cups of butter or margarine softened

4 cups of flour

4 tsp of baking soda

1 tsp of slat

2 tsp of cinnamon

1 tsp of cloves (or less if preferred)

1 tsp of ginger

2 cups of sugar

1/2 cup of molasses

2 eggs


Melt butter. Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly.  Separately mix flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Add 2 cups sugar to cooled butter, add molasses and eggs. Mix until smooth and thick. Add flour mixture. Batter will be moist but do not add extra flour!

Cover and let shill for 2 hours. (I did overnight) Roll dough out into 1 inch balls and then roll in sugar.

Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes. They will looked under cooked, but they will set after a while.

Makes 60 cookies

  1. Kloe,
    Are these the same Molasses Cookies we made at Am. Girl? They look delicious! 🙂
    We are praying for you all, have you had any showings since you came to our house? I hope you can come over again soon!! Do you think you will be around for 4th of July? I hope so!
    Love you bunches!

    • Yes! These are the same ones. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe! They were a hit at the graduation and not one was left when we went to collect the plates. Yes we have a showing on Thursday, but they said they wouldn’t be buying the house. My dad says he thinks we will still be here for the 4th! I hope so too!

      Love you too!

  2. cookies with molasses rock. it’s another ingredient that’s practically not used at all here in Poland, but i love it.
    are you moving somewhere far away, or just changing houses? 🙂

    • Thanks! I think molasses rocks too, and I just love it in these cookies! Yes, we are moving quite far away…Currently we live in Michigan and we will be moving to Arkansas, about 700-800 miles. It will be a change for sure!

      Thanks for stopping by my blog, I love yours!

  3. Congratulations to your brother, Kloe.
    These cookies look so professional – I will be making them for guests, as I always like to have a jar of homemade cookies ready.
    Makes 60… I think I may just use half the recipe, though!!
    I hope your house move plans work out for you.

    • Thanks, I will tell him! I am glad you are going to make them. I am sure they will enjoy them. My family had a hard time staying away from them and saving them for the ceremony. Please let me know how they turn out!

  5. Lots of graduation stuffs, really! But hey, all the effort is worth it. 😉 And these cookies are perfect for the party. Thank you for bringing these, Kloe. Good luck on the move. Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Thanks! I know right! We have a friend’s open house this week, but nothing we have to bring….

      Thanks for all of the good wishes on the move. It’s coming along. Still hard to believe it’s actually happening.

    • Thanks! We do too! My great grandma used to make these and we always loved them, but this recipe is softer than hers and I have to say I like it better. (No offense to grandma!) Thanks for stopping in!

  6. ive never tried cooking anything with mollasses actually i am not really sure what they are lol. perhaps some invetigation for me. Thank you for coming to the FF party, I hope you are enjoying yourself, Justine, co host with mr Fitz xx

  7. I just love molasses cookies. They are also my oldest son’s favorite cookies. Yours look so moist – like they would melt in your mouth. Moving can be such a jumble of emotions. It is really nice you have your brothers and sisters to talk to about it.

  8. Yummy! I ❤ molasses! I don't like using margarine though. I stopped ages ago because of the funny after taste they always left and because of how greasy they made my goods 😦 I will try using butter though. Thanks Kloe! 😀

  9. I love molasses and these cookies look great! Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!!

  10. Always on the look out for a good ginger molasses cookie recipe. It’s a fav for my 3yr old and I. I like how your recipe uses melted butter and a chilled cookie dough yields a chewier cookie. I’m going to give your recipe a try:)
