Molasses Cookies

I tried this from All Recipes.


  • 3/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 cup white sugar


  1. Mix together the melted margarine, one cup sugar, and egg.
  2. Add the molasses.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the molasses mixture.
  5. Chill dough for one hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  7. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and roll them in the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar.
  8. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.


  • I used butter.
  • I added probably close to two teaspoons of cinnamon.
  • I had no ginger, so I added a little more cloves.
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar to roll the dough in at the end is a little too much. I’d say use about 1/4 cup.

After Thoughts

Chewy and spicy! Well, spicy in the sense that you can really taste the spices. Not the other kind which is what I thrive on, but I digress. The cookies yield a nice bittersweet taste (more on the sweet side) and go excellent with a glass of cold milk.
