Chewy and Spicy Ginger Molasses Cookies

Who's ready for some holiday cookie-ing?? I know I am! There is just something about soft molasses cookies, isn't there? These cookies are chewy, soft and spicy - and are a seriously easy molasses cookie recipe! I love a cookie that can be ready in under 25 minutes, don't you?

If you want to pin this recipe, I've included an easy to pin image at the bottom of the post! That way you can easily save it for later!

Molasses cookies are one of my dad's favorites, and he would sometimes pick some up for an afternoon snack for us kids growing up. We would come home and he'd have cookies and tea waiting for us, and it was so much fun! We never knew when it would happen, which added to the fun! So molasses cookies have a very special place in my heart now too! Maybe it's genetic because Charlotte was also pretty obsessed haha!


2 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon sugar for rolling
1/3 cup molasses
1 large egg


Preheat the oven to 375. Whisk together the dry ingredients, flour through salt, and set aside. In the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add molasses and egg, mixing until combined. Add the flour mixture in two batches, mixing until just combined. Form tablespoon size balls, and roll each ball in sugar before placing on baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Cookies will be done when they're cracked on top - mine were perfect at 9 minutes.
