butter flavored shortening
packed brown sugar
My son says these are the best cookies I've ever made, and I agree! I used butter instead of shortening. YUM!!!
I am a very experienced baker and I did not care for this recipe. The cookies were flat and not at all like a true molasses cookie should be. Very little molasses taste. Will not try again.
For me, this is the perfect molasses cookie. I've been searching for years and finally found it - crisp yet chewy, tasting of molasses and spices and sugar, melting in the mouth. Think the Starbuck's molasses cookie but smaller. Not being fond of shortening, I compromised with half butter flavor shortening and half butter, and being very fond of cloves, I upped the cloves to 1 1/2 teaspoons. Otherwise, I followed the recipe, and was very happy. Be aware that the dough is rather sticky, so your hands will be too when you're done. Well worth the trouble though.
I offered these cookies at a party along with 5 other treats, and these went the quickest. They were a combination of chewy, soft and crisp. This will replace my current molassas cookie recipe for sure! Delicious!!
i love the flavour of these cookies! i substitute butter for shortening/ these really satisfy my molasses craving.
Loved these! I have never heard of a molasses cookie, but OMG Yum! I chilled the dough for about an hour and they turned out plump & chewy. Cooled mine on a granite counter to keep them soft. 8 minutes baking was definately enough for my oven. A new family (and neighborhood favorite :)
A yummy old-fashioned tasting cookie. I usually add a 3/4 cup of raisins.
