Molasses Drop Cookies

Molasses. Mmmmm. A staple for baking, cooking and eating, molasses has been a part of Newfoundland culture forever. I think I ate molasses on everything as a kid; even on chicken. Nothing made me happier. These cookies just bring back all those childhood memories. And the aroma of molasses cookies baking is one of the happiest Christmas memories.

 

MOLASSES DROP COOKIES

What you will need:

3 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp. ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup fancy molasses

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 egg

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup  hot coffee, or substitute hot milk, if you prefer

 

Preheat oven to 375. Grease cookie sheets.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Stir baking soda into hot coffee (or milk). Add to other ingredients and mix dough until well blended.

Drop cookie dough by the tablespoon onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.
