Christmas Molasses and Ginger Cookies


1 1/3 cups molasses

2/3 cup packed brown sugar

2/3 cup butter, softened

5 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 eggs

4 tsp ground cinnamon

2 tsp baking soda

2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp salt


Beat molasses, brown sugar, and butter together in a bowl until smooth. Mix flour, eggs, cinnamon, baking soda, ginger, and salt into molasses mixture until incorporated. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Form walnut size balls and slightly press down the center. Arrange cookies 1-inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Note: Use flour to handle cookie dough if it becomes too sticky.

Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are firm to the touch, about 8 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
