Take a bite out of a classic with these soft and chewy molasses cookies. This recipe is perfect for the holidays!
Hello there! This is Katie from The Casual Craftlete blog. I am super excited to share with you all a yummy Christmas cookie recipe. These soft and chewy molasses cookies are seriously what the holidays taste like.
The cookie dough starts by combining dry ingredients like, flour, baking soda, and warm spices. Use a whisk to incorporate all of the ingredients and set aside. How cute are those candy cane measuring spoons? You can find those festive measuring spoons in the Barn Owl Primitives Christmas goods section here.
Next, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. The key to soft and chewy cookies is to make sure the butter is at room temperature and not melted or too hard. Mix in eggs and of course molasses. Then, gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the dough and chill in the refrigerate for at least one hour. I like to chill my dough over night.
I use a small cookie scoop to portion 1 inch round balls. Fill a small bowl with granulated sugar and roll the balls to completely coat. Bake in a 375 degree for 8 to 10 minutes. The cookies will crack while baking and when cooling. One tip I have is when you are waiting for the cookies to bake, stick the dough back in the refrigerator because you want to keep the dough chilled. This recipe does make about 40 cookies so it is a large batch recipe which is great for parties and cookie exchanges.
Thank you so much for letting me share my Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies recipe. It was a pleasure to be here on Barn Owl Primitives today! I hope you stop by my blog, The Casual Craftlete for more great recipes and easy DIY craft project ideas.
