As the title states, this post is a recipe for molasses cookies. These cookies are so delicious, they are honestly the epitome of Christmas. Every bite is spicy, sweet, and delicious! They’re super soft and literally melt in your mouth. I got the inspiration for this recipe from Averie Cooks.
- 1/2 cup liquefied coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups flour
- 3/4 cup packed brown or light sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup unsulphered molasses
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
Process: Mix your egg, brown sugar, coconut oil until smooth. Next add your molasses and vanilla extract. Put your spices and salt into the mixture. Finally add your baking soda and flour. In a small bowl mix your cinnamon sugar and set it aside.
Cover the batter with plastic wrap and let it chill for at least three hours.
When they are done chilling preheat your oven to 350, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and use a small spoon to scoop the batter onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Put them in the oven for 7-8 minutes. When they come out let them cool for a few minutes and them dip them in your cinnamon sugar coating while they are still a little warm.
These cookies are perfect for a Christmas party or just to have for yourself and your family! I don’t even want to admit how many of them I ate on my own lol!
