Spicy Molasses Cookies


Every year my friends and I do a  holiday cookie exchange. It’s so much fun to try everyone’s different cookies, and so nice to have a big variety of homemade cookies that my whole family can share through the holiday season. I try to make something different every year. This year I’m going to make these spicy molasses cookies.

I tried the recipe out a few days ago and they are amazing. They are packed full of spices and sweetened with irresistible dark molasses. I’ve been in love with molasses my whole life. I remember as a young child going to a family friend’s farm who grew sugar cane and made molasses. It’s a long process, so worth the wait.


So when Grandma’s Molasses invited me to help promote their Cookie Exchange Recipe Contest, I couldn’t turn them down. I have two jars of their molasses in my cupboard. I didn’t say this, but their molasses is even better than the homemade molasses from my childhood.

The Cookie Exchange Recipe Submission Contest will begin on Dec. 3rd and is open to the public. Each day a new recipe by 12 different bloggers will be showcased. Hopefully our recipes will inspire your creativity! Entrants are required to submit an original cookie recipe that includes the use of Grandma’s Molasses.
