Simply Wonderful Molasses Spice Cookies

recipes Nov 13, 2018

Each year, as fall comes around, I start thinking about all of my favorite autumn recipes: gingerbread, pumpkin pie, ginger snaps, cardamom creme brûlée...but these cookies are at the top of the list. Being full of spice and rich molasses, and super easy to make, these cookies are the perfect fall/Thanksgiving/Christmas fix! I love to enjoy them with Coconut Tea and a slice of Kerrygold Dubliner cheese.

TIPS FOR AMAZING MOLASSES SPICE COOKIES

  • Don’t overbake!
  • Add 2 tablespoons extra molasses if you’d like the cookies to spread a bit more. –>>The pictured cookies were made with the extra molasses, so they spread nicely. Oh, be sure and double the recipe, because these lil’ cookies disappear fast! Dough can be made ahead, and frozen, ready to bake.
  • We’ve added a bit extra spice, but you can adjust more or less to your taste.
