Old Fashion Soft Molasses Cookies. A 1950's recipe still going strong!

Let The Holiday Baking Begin!

Everyone has a favorite recipe they like for the Christmas Holidays, in our family, it is the Soft Molasses Cookie. They are big,soft, molasses cookies topped with butter cream frosting and half a walnut. This is a recipe that has been passed down in our family since the 1950's. This recipe has stood the test of time! They pack and ship well and in a closed container will last through the holidays.  Well, not in our family they hardly last a week.

You will need a large mixing bowl, a large saucepan, cookies sheets, parchment paper ( or greased cookie sheets with flour works)

Grocery List: Molasses, Butter, Brown Sugar, White Sugar, Eggs, Flour, Cinnamon, and milk, frosting, nuts and raisins. A tuperware container or tin to keep them fresh.

Soft Old Fashion Molasses Cookies: Set oven to 375*      Soft Molasses Cookies with Frosting

Cream together in a saucepan

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 cup light brown molasses

Melt over low heat until thoroughly mixed.

While that is melting, in a separate bowl mix dry ingredients:

4 cups flour

2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon sale

1 teaspoon baking soda

After the two mixes are stirred cream them together with 3/4 cup of milk. Mix thoroughly. I use a hand mixer however my sister uses a big stand mixer either works fine. Note: they are delicious when you add raisins and chopped walnuts into the batter.

Next let batter stand for 5-10 minutes until it thickens. Grease and flour the cookie sheets( or use parchment paper) Use a tablespoon to drop spoonfuls on the cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 375*.

Remove from oven and let them cool. Once cool to the touch top with butter cream frosting and half a walnut.

Trust me...you are going to LOVE these cookies.
