At our house, December is cookie season. Between what the neighbors bring by & what I make for our little family, it can be easy to get a little ‘hooked’ on a daily treat. And today I’ll be sharing my favorite chewy molasses cookie recipe. Neighbors will be asking you for the recipe, guaranteed. Sugar cookies get all the attention this time of year, but if you’re ready for something a little more fun, chewy molasses cookies are my favorite!
Five years ago last week I became a mom for the first time. I don’t need to tell you what a life changing experience that is. I spent nearly 36 hours at home in labor. In between contractions, I made aprons (pattern here) for Christmas presents and made a batch of this molasses cookie dough for the Labor & Delivery nurses I knew I would meet very soon. (My mom baked the cookies while I was at the hospital)
Now, I make these cookies every year and they are still favorites! These are the softest, chewiest molasses cookies you’ll ever taste. They work perfectly with my favorite Namaste brand gluten free flour. These make great neighbor gifts and look pretty fancy sprinkled with just a bit of powdered sugar!
Serve with a little hot cocoa & a candy cane and you will be feeling ready for Christmas in no time!
