Merry Molasses Cookies

Hey Loves! F & J here!image1

The winter season always brings so many sweet traditions that make the spirit of the holidays come alive. This time of year baking is something that both our families are really into. Whether it be cookies for Santa, or sweet treats to share, there are always things baking in the oven.

We really felt the holiday spirit yesterday when we looked out our windows and snow was falling from the sky. We had just picked out the perfect tree and the house was cozy and warm. It just felt right to whip up some delicious and festive cookies.  We chose to make molasses cookies and they were a big hit. They were warm and chewy and just perfect.

To make them more festive we just dipped them in white chocolate and decorated them to look like they had holly on them. Super cute and easy. Check out the recipe below! And let us know what your favorite holiday traditions are!

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp cloves

1/2 tsp ginger

Decorations

How to make:

  1. Beat together the sugar and butter until creamy and then add the molasses and beat until well mixed.
  2. Beat in egg until the mixture it lighter in color and fluffy.
  3. Combine the dry ingredients and mix in separate bowl.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.
  5. Refrigerate dough for about 45 minutes, or until it hardens a bit ( It will make it easier to roll them into balls)
  6. Roll the dough into about 1 inch balls and coat them in sugar. Place them on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-11 minutes.
  8. Let the cookies cool, then dip them into melted white chocolate. Decorate as desired! Enjoy!

Love,

F & J
