These soft, cake-like cookies are especially satisfying because they're very low in fat," remarks Sarah Jane Hayes of Dilworth, Minnesota. "I modified an old recipe, and my husband and I like this version even better."

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee, room temperature
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • FROSTING:
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows
  • 2 egg whites

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine sugar, molasses and coffee. Combine dry ingredients; add to sugar mixture and mix well. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Roll dough on a floured surface to about 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with 3-in. to 4-in. cookie cutters. Place on baking sheets that have been coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks.
  3. Meanwhile, for frosting, combine sugar, water and vinegar in a heavy saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil. Uncover and cook over medium-high heat until a candy thermometer reads 234°-240° (soft-ball stage), about 5-10 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in marshmallows until smooth.
  4. In a bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually beat in sugar mixture; beat on high for 7-8 minutes or until stiff peaks form. Frost the cookies.
