Don’t let the holiday season pass without making these Soft Molasses Cookies! The dough is perfectly spiced, then rolled into balls and then in sugar and baked to soft perfection. Then they’re finished off with a drizzling of a sweet glaze. These are absolutely irresistible!
The other day when I was making these cookies, I ran out of molasses. So I had to make a special trip to the grocery store. I can tell you that these cookies were well worth the trip! They’re perfectly spiced with ginger, cloves and cinnamon. They make you want to cozy up by the glow of the tree while munching and watching a Christmas movie. I’ve been binge-watching Hallmark Christmas movies. I love how predictable and cheesy, yet sweetly romantic they are. 🙂
My family loves to watch a Christmas movie whenever the evening allows. We just saw Home Alone 2. It’s a Christmas classic! There will for sure be time to see the Jim Carrey Grinch, which we always look forward to. It makes us laugh and laugh. And we’ll squeeze in a viewing of The Christmas Story because…leg lamp and marshmallow coat. Need I say more?
Do you have favorite Christmas traditions that you get excited about each December? We love to deliver goodie plates to friends and neighbors. I’m still trying to finalize what will go on those plates this time around. I’m thinking this 5 Minute Mint Fudge, this Cinnamon Caramel Popcorn and these Chocolate Turtle Cookies definitely have earned a spot. And I’m sure I’ll throw on a few of today’s Soft Molasses Cookies, because it just wouldn’t be Christmas without them!
On Christmas morning, we enjoy a delicious, savory Breakfast Casserole to balance out all those sweets. And then for Christmas dinner, it’s baked ham, cheesy potatoes and homemade rolls. I love all the food that comes with the holiday season. Don’t you?
I also love a good gingerbread cookie! They’ve got to be soft, though. These Molasses Cookies totally fit the bill. They’re totally incredible! Is there a certain cookie that you think of when you think of Christmas? This is that cookie for me. I’ve shared a few tasty gingerbread cookie recipes over the years, including these Pumpkin Gingerbread Cookies, these Gingerbread Cookie Bars, these Gingerbread Sugar and Spice Cookies, these Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Oatmeal Sandwich Cookies, and these Soft Gingerbread Cutout Cookies. But I believe that you just can’t have too many gingerbread cookie recipes in your arsenal. These ones have definitely earned their place in the gingerbread cookie lineup.
I’m so excited for you to try them! I hope they become a holiday tradition at your house! Serve them up on a pretty platter and everyone at the party will go wild for them!
Every holiday gathering calls for some Soft Molasses Cookies! I hope these make an appearance at your house before the season is over. Have a very Merry Christmas!
