The Best Chewy Moist Molasses Cookie Recipe In The World

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This Molasses Cookie Recipe results in a very moist, chewy and soft cookie.  The actual recipe card says Molasses Cookies, but when I got married and had kids I changed the name because I didn’t think girls would like the name molasses…so I changed the name of the cookies.  My girls grew up with this cookie being called a sugar and spice and everything nice cookie.

I remember as a little girl, I would see that molasses jar my mother made bread with and I could not bear to think I was eating a Molasses Cookie. It was brown, gooey, thick and sticky. My mother actually bought Sorghum and used it in place of the molasses in a lot of recipes. Okay, so back to the cookies. If you use a cookie scoop (approx. 1/4 cup size) these make the perfect size to fit inside a wide-mouth quart jar.

Cut a circle of fabric, place it on the lid, screw the ring tight and add a little ribbon and a tag and you are ready to deliver this yummy jar of cookies to a neighbor or friend. Most people nowadays love something homemade. You could actually just stir these cookies by hand if you don’t want to use a hand mixer or a stand mixer. These jars would be so cute to just add the recipe or attach a cookie scoop. Enjoy!

Here is the recipe:
