Molasses Spice Cookies

This is an incredibly easy recipe to make. It takes just a few minutes to mix up the ingredients, then only 8-10 minutes to cook the cookies. After a few minutes of letting the cookies cool you have a wonderful snack or dessert any time of year. Enjoy! And thanks to my friend Diana and her co-worker's wife for the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 Tbsp molasses
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger

Instructions

Rarely can you find simpler instructions than these!

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together. I used an electric hand mixer to mix them, then switched to my bare hands.
  2. Make small balls (~1 inch in diameter) out of the dough, then roll them in sugar.
  3. Place the sugar coated balls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Let them cool and enjoy!

These cookies look fantastic! Did the first batch of cookies that came out of the oven raise as much as the second?

Hi Paul, we actually used 2 cookie sheets so we were able to put them all in the oven at the same time. Therefore they all rose the same amount. And I am astounded at how good they are!! Next time I show up at a party or a dinner, I'm taking these cookies with me. They are with out question the best cookies I've ever made.

Nice. Did the cookies on the bottom rack puff up more?

I actually have a convection oven (ie. a fan in the oven that circulates the hot air) so I didn't notice a difference between the top and middle racks. Have you had issues with that in the past? I'm uploading a video shortly, and you'll get to see the finished top-rack cookies in it. But unfortunately I don't think I have photos or video of the lower rack cookies for comparison. But looking at them all on a plate I couldn't tell which came from which rack.
