Awh if you could only smell my kitchen as these little babies were baking! It’s now feeling (and smelling) like fall around here, finally! When I want to make my own air freshener, these come first to mind, not to mention they taste out of this world! I got this recipe from Isaac’s aunt and have been making them ever since! They are so good, soft and chewy with the creaminess of the powdered sugar frosting, it’s a match made in heaven!

Molasses Cookies

  • 1 1/8 cup oil
  • 3/8 cup molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 t ground cloves
  • 3/4 t ginger
  • 1 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 3 t baking soda
  • 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour

Mix the oil, molasses, eggs and brown sugar together until well combined. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Bake at 375 for 5-8 minutes (enjoy the wonderful aroma as they bake), cookies should be soft and chewy. Cool on rack.

Make frosting by combining powdered sugar with a little water until desired contistancy, I prefer a little thicker frosting. Frost cookies with the back of a spoon. Enjoy these!
