Christmas Spice Cookies

12

"My children love spice cookies at any time. I think most children love them. I am enclosing a recipe that moms and dads can have their children help with during the baking at Christmas. Every child keeps their special memories of every day with the family and I sure remember mine from when I was a little girl."

  1. Beat the sugar, molasses, butter or margarine, and oil together. Add 2 cups of the flour and the baking soda, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. Mix in the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough is stiff. Flatten into disks and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Place cookies on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 minutes.

Excellent recipe that was easy to make. Instead of putting one teaspoon of each spice I put four teaspoons of all spice. Also I tryed a few with and with out icing and I definately think they ne...

Every year i try a few new cookie recipes, but it takes a really special cookie to get on my list of "regulars". This cookie made it not just for its wonderfully zingy spiciness but for its abil...

i made these at Xmas time and they didn't really suit me. some of my tasters loved them but i thought the molassas was FAR too over powering.

These are great! My boyfriend loved them! Perhaps next time I'll use less molasses and see how it turns out because I felt that the taste was a bit too strong. After a few days it did taste bett...

These are a tasty cookie. They use a ton of molasses, though! I think the only thing I will do different if I make them again is roll them out a lot thicker, and cook them less. They were a b...
