Jumbo Molasses Cookies
Total TimePrep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min./batch
A favorite of my family and friends around the holidays.
My father and bosses favorite cookie. This recipe can be halved beautifully, the cookies come out perfect.
I just read the review about flattening them a little. Not necessary with all sugar, but with splenda it may help.
I've been making this recipe ever since I saw it in the magazine years ago. My family loves them. I make several batches during Thanksgiving and Christmas now to give away as gifts. Everyone who gets a taste loves them. The only " complaint" they have is how big they are and they " have" to eat the whole thing because it's so delicious. I do size them down at times. I've also substituted half of the sugar with Splenda and noticed that the cookies aren't as flat, which makes its easier to fit more on the cookie sheet. They come out just as delicious. But I wonder if I still need to refrigerate for an hour. In any case, enjoy this wonderful cookie, it makes the house smell heavenly!
Have made these several times! They ARE GREAT!!
Use olive oil in place of shortening - it's cheaper and faster!
This is a fantasic cookie,everyone i give them too always love them, and they beg for more, i roll mine in "suger in the raw" in the brown box in most stores and i flatten them just a little with my hand and they come out just perfect.
Well this cookies are ok.But for me nah!anyway who ever likes molasses dont bake them at 350,try baking them at 325 cause if you bake them higher they will burn.
