In light of the holidays, I'd like to share a yummy recipe from Taste of Home.  I made these molasses and ginger cookies for Thanksgiving and they were a hit!  I mean, you pretty much can't go wrong with cookies during the holiday season. So here goes...  Enjoy!

Soft and Chewy Molasses Cookies

  • 24 Servings
  • Prep: 15 min. Bake: 10 min./batch


  • 1 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and 1 cup sugar. Blend in molasses and egg. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and cloves; add to creamed mixture. Mix until well blended.
