Iced Molasses Cookies

Here is another cookie recipe from the archives.

Sometimes inviting company over for a meal can seem overwhelming...what about inviting a few friends for tea and cookies and maybe a few cheese and crackers?  You will be glad you did!!!

I hope that this Christmas season will be a time of JOY as you reflect on the birth of Jesus. It is this baby that changed the course of History in offering us hope for eternal life!


Cream Together:

¾ cup butter, softened

1 cup organic sugar


¼ cup Brer Rabbit Molasses {unsulphured, mild flavor}

1 egg

Stir together and add to molasses mix:

3 cups flour{or 2 cups flour + 1 cup bread flour}

2 tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. sea salt salt

1 tsp. each of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves

*Mix well

*Roll dough into balls...about the size of a golf ball

*Roll balls in organic sugar

*Place sugared dough balls on SILPAT or onto parchment lined baking sheets

*Bake for 10 minutes @ 375* or until cookies start to "crack". Let sit for a few minutes.  These are best under baked a bit so they stay soft and chewy!

Makes about 16 cookies.

Once cookies are cooled, melt white chocolate or candy discs and drizzle over cookies and sprinkle with coarse sanding sugar.


Usually organic sugar is optional, but in this recipe it makes them oh.so.good!

"Yet in thy dark streets shineth, the everlasting Light, the hopes and fears of all the years, are met in Thee tonight."
