Favorite Molasses Cookies


Spices are not just for cooking; Ginger helps relieve nausea and motion sickness, Cloves repel ants when placed in doors and windows, and the American Diabetes Association recommends 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon to help balance sugar levels.

Don’t you love Molasses Cookies? The timer rings, you take them out of the oven, the sugar sparkles and your house smells so good… the cinnamon…the cloves…the ginger….yummy!

Favorite Molasses Cookies from my Mom

3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Watkins Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Watkins Cloves
1/2 tsp Watkins Ginger

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.  Beat in molasses and egg.  Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture.  Chill for 1 hour or until firm.  Shape into 1 inch balls; roll in sugar.  Place on greased baking sheets or sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 375 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on wire racks.

Bon appetit!
