Chewy Molasses Cookies
Molasses in January! You will love the chewiness and ginger spice flavour of these very easy cookies. And the easiest bit is that they are made in a pot on the stove. Make sure you are already full before you try these!
Pre-heat oven to 350 F
Line a baking tray with parchment paper
3/4 Cup unsalted butter
1 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup Blackstrap Molasses
1 and 3/4 Cups unbleached white flour
1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger or 1 teaspoon of fresh ginger, grated
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon of baking soda
Sift together dry ingredients, and set aside.
In a medium saucepan, heat the butter, sugar, molasses over low heat until melted
Remove from heat
Whisk in the egg
Fold in dry ingredients until blended
Drop tablespoons of batter onto parchment paper
Bake for about 8-10 minutes until just done. Less for chewy, more for crisp.
Easy and Delicious!
