Molasses cookies…oh my.

My goal for this post was to give you proper motivation for your afternoon snack. Just the word cookie…and I’m in search of. But these molasses cookies are possibly my all time favorite, and Heather was kind enough to bake these at my request.  I think I had around 15 while I photographed this. Seriously. I loved every one. It’s actually driving me crazy that there are some left in the kitchen right now, as I write this. I’ll be right back…….grab your coffee and enjoy!

(Just ask if you want the recipe)

EDIT….recipe is in the comments

    • Tim, I figured I would just post it…. here you go!
      Heavenly Molasses Cookies

      3/4 cup butter, softened
      1 cup sugar (plus a little for coating)
      1 egg, beaten
      4 Tbsp. molasses
      1 3/4 cups flour
      2 tsp. baking soda
      pinch of salt
      2 tsp. ground ginger
      2 tsp. ground cinnamon
      1/2 tsp. ground cloves

      Mix butter, sugar, egg, and molasses. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Add liquid mixture to dry mixture. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Form into balls, roll in sugar until coated. Place 2″ apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 6 – 8 minutes.

    • OK, here’s the tip! Heather and I like them a little gooey, so closer to 6- 6 1/2 minutes. The cookies in the picture were about 7 1/2. They still tasted great, however! 🙂
