Last minute cookies: Spicy Molasses

Last minute cookies: Spicy Molasses

Here’s a REALLY easy cookie recipe for when you have NO TIME.

I just made these this morning for our daycare’s caroling at the convalescent home. Totally forgot I was going to make them until around 8AM. D’OH!

No pictures – no time. These are winners from The Pioneer Woman. You only need one bowl. You are done making them from start to finish within about 20 minutes. They are chewy, tasty & yummy. The only change I made was to use the turbinado raw sugar to roll them in but if you don’t have it you can use plain sugar too.

A simple recipe that’s simply delicious!! Spicy & chewy – not your run of the mill holiday cookie.
  • 1 c sugar
  • ¾ c Crisco
  • ¼ c molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 c flour
  • 2-1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground cardamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • turbinado sugar for coating the cookies (regular sugar works too!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix sugar, Crisco, molasses & egg together until well combined.
  3. Add dry ingredients, stirring until combined. (If you don’t mind two bowls – you can whisk together your dry ingredients first in a separate bowl.) I did it all in 1 bowl and they came out perfect!
  4. Roll tbsp sized balls in your hands, the roll through a plate of turbinado sugar (or regular sugar if that’s what you have!). Place on cookie sheet leaving ample room for spreading.
  5. Bake for 9-11 minutes or for 1 minute after cracks appear on top of them.

Makes between 30 and 36 cookies depending how big you make them.
