Soft Molasses Cookies

Soft Molasses Cookies

I went searching for a recipe for Starbucks Molasses Cookies (my favorite) and I tweaked and combined a couple of different recipes to come up with this one.  I think they are about as close as you could possibly get to the real thing. 🙂 They are soft and chewy and completely delicious.  *Note* This dough needs a 2 hour chill time before baking.

Rolled In Sugar

3/4 cup shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 cup molasses
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
Granulated sugar (for rolling)

Cream together shortening and brown sugar.  Stir in egg and molasses and mix well.  Fold in dry ingredients and stir.  Cover and chill for two hours.

Preheat oven to 350°.  Roll dough into small balls and roll in white sugar.  Place on lightly greased cookie sheet (or sheet lined with parchment paper). Bake for 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
