Chewy Molasses Cookie Recipe

This just has to be one of the yummiest recipes for molasses cookies. It is crisp and sugary on the outside and chewy and spicy on the inside. They have a very spicy/molasses flavor. While these are cooking, the entire house smells, oh, so delicious! I found this recipe on and have tweaked it a bit to my liking. These are fabulous with a cup of Red Rose Tea (with a little milk and sugar, of course). So, go ahead, and bake up a batch and enjoy with a hot cup of tea in one of your prettiest teacups.

1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp ground cloves
1-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1-1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/3 cup white sugar to roll dough in

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C)
Mix together brown sugar, oil, molasses, and egg. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cloves, cinnamon, and ginger then stir into the molasses mixture. Roll dough into balls then roll in white sugar. Bake for 8 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet.

I'd love to hear from you if you have tried this recipe and have enjoyed it.
