How to make Molasses Cookies

This is my favorite cookie recipe! I recommend a large glass of cool milk to complement this dish.

  1. Preheat oven to 350(F) degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, mix egg, vegetable oil, molasses and 1 cup of sugar.
  3. Then mix in cinnamon, cloves, ginger, salt, baking soda and flour.
  4. After mixture is completely blended, roll into small balls - about 1 inch in diameter - and roll each in remaining sugar.
  5. Bake for about 7 minutes.
  6. Remove from cookie sheet to cool.

    oh man this looks amazing! i love molasses and ginger cookies- personally i'll probably double or triple the ginger because i love it, but looks like a great recipe altogether! can't wait to try it- great picture!

    okay i tried it- best cookies i've ever made!!! i made a few changes, though- i used half brown sugar, half white, and also fresh ginger (and tripled the amount). also, blackstrap molasses is probably the best way to go. thanks for a great recipe!!
