Molasses Cookies are one of my favorite cookies to make in the fall. These spiced molasses cookies are easy to make and bake for a fun back to school treat.
Welcome to the inaugural Fill the Cook Jar Blog Hop! I have joined forces with a great group of bloggers to bring our favorite cookies once a month so that you can fill your cookie jar with delicious treats. I don't bake cookies often enough and I'm hoping this fun monthly blog hop will help me be inspired to bake more cookies.
This month I chose a molasses cookie recipe from my friend's mom. Way back during my freshman year in college my roommate's mom sent her a package with these cookies in them. I just about died from happiness when she shared with me! I immediately requested the recipe and her mom sent it to me on a post card, which I still have to this day.
If you let the dough chill for a while then let it warm up a bit before scooping the cookies out. The cookies will turn out a little thicker. If you want to bake right away, just let the dough firm up in the fridge before cooping.
