Spicy Molasses Cookies



I found this recipe over at The Tasty Kitchen and it happens to be one of Pioneer Woman’s recipes. It is sooo yummy! The dough was a little soft and I was afraid it would need more flour, but they baked up great! My whole family likes them, yup, even Sloan! I will be making these a lot! They make the house smell great too!

Spicy Molasses Cookies

2 cups Sugar

1 1/2 cups Crisco (vegetable Shortening)

1/2 cup Molasses

2 Eggs

4 cups Flour

5 teaspoons Baking Soda

4 teaspoons Cinnamon

4 teaspoons Ground Ginger

1 teaspoon Ground Cloves

1/2teaspoon Ground Cardamom

1/2 teaspoon Salt

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk the flour, baking soda and spices and salt. In a mixer, mix sugar, shortening, molasses, and eggs together until well combined. With a cookie scoop, scoop out cookies and roll them in sugar. I like to use the organic sugar that comes in a box because it stays crunchy after the cookies are baked. Place balls on a baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes, allowing to bake for about a minute after cookies begin to crack.

Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool…though these are delicious while still warm.
