Time for December Recipe Swap!
This month I received the blog Jey of Cooking
. I have made a few of her recipes before for previous swaps such as, tilapia in tomato bacon butter and quinoa crusted chicken . Both were delicious and I was excited to try something new. I love molasses cookies and when I came across her recipe for Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies
I was sold (perfect for the holidays as well!). This recipe is so easy and the flavors are delicious. I love the spice from the ginger with the flavors from the molasses....yum!
Thank you for an awesome new recipe....I ate a bunch fresh from the oven and I think I need to make another batch! Thanks also go to Sarah of A Taste of Home Cooking
for organizing our swaps!
3/4 Cup Butter, softened
2 Cups Sugar (and a little extra for sprinkling at the end)
2 Eggs, beaten
1/2 Cup Molasses
2 tsp Vinegar
3 3/4 Cups Flour
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tbsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
Preheat oven to 325. Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, molasses and vinegar and beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon and clove. Add flour mixture a little bit at a time to the wet mixture until fully combined. Using a cookie scoop, drop balls onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
Bake 9-10 minutes.
