Soft Chewy Ginger Cookies w/ Molasses

by zesty on October 22, 2010 · 13 comments

I love any cookies that have molasses in them and these soft, chewy ginger cookies are no exception! I don’t know what my issues have been as of late but I feel I am hooked on SWEETS. It is crazy and normally I am just hooked on potato chips, french fries and double cheese burgers. Haha kidding…. maybe! Ok so as I type this post I am still reeling from the fact that as I was driving home last night – I get pulled over by the cops for speeding. Grrrrrrrr. Anyway my own fault as I was driving pretty fast and well over the speed limit. But what a way to dampen your day!

Let’s lift our spirits with a soft chewy ginger cookie. Usually when you eat these, I recommend 2-3 per serving and a heaping glass of chilled white milk. YUM!


  • 1 1/4 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/2 Tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 Tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 Tsp. ground cloves
  • 1/4 Tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 Tsp. allspice
  • 1/3 Cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 Cup sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp. molasses
  • 2 Tbsp. white sugar (for rolling cookies)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, blend flour, baking soda and spices together and set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream together butter and 1/2 cup of sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg until well mixed. Then add the molasses and mix to combine.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture.
  5. Using rounded teaspoonfuls (or not quite full tablespoons), form dough into balls and roll them in the extra 2 tablespoons of sugar.
  6. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet, lightly flatten and bake in preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
  8. ENJOY!

Zesty Tip: The rolling in white sugar really adds a nice dimension of both flavor and texture to these cookies. Whatever you do – do not skimp on this step. You will be disappointed if you do.

I need some ideas on what to write for the Christmas edition of the G! magazine. I was thinking a fun gum drop cheese cake recipe, some sticky date pudding but I need a third recipe. Any ideas? Have a super Friday and a fun weekend.

Take care
