Molasses Crinkle Cookies are crusty outside and soft inside. They’re slightly sweet and flavored with molasses, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon (or use ground nutmeg).
The house smells soooo good while these mouth watering treats are baking in the oven.
Surprisingly, butter is NOT an ingredient. Easy to make with simple ingredients.
RECIPE MAKES ABOUT 4 DOZEN COOKIES
To get 48 cookies, roll each cookie dough ball into the size of a walnut before baking.
Molasses Crinkle Cookies are a great gift for individuals who love cookies.

Delighted to share what I purchased and used to make these sho’ nuff good tasting cookies.
Room temperature molasses are easier to pour than cold molasses.
If you keep the jar in the refrigerator after opening, simply remove from fridge and place on kitchen counter.
Allow to stand for about 35 minutes before pouring into measuring cup. Quick and easy!
INSPIRATION FOR THIS RECIPE
I made adjustments to the Molasses Crinkle Cookies recipe printed on the back of the jar.
Substituted ground nutmeg for cinnamon. Tasted great in my opinion.
SIFT, SPOON AND LEVEL ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR BEFORE USING
Make sure flour is properly measured before using. Too much flour will make the cookies thick, dry and dull tasting.
Watch video in which flour is being correctly measured on my YouTube channel. I welcome your comments and subscription!
In the following steps, I show you how to correctly measure flour:
1. Place sifter over a medium sized bowl, pour about 3 cups of all-purpose flour into the sifter.
2. Sift all-purpose flour into medium sized bowl. After sifting, discard hard pieces left in sifter.
3. Use a spoon to “spoon” sifted all-purpose flour into measuring cup. Pile high. Level off with smooth side of knife.
Return excess all-purpose flour to your container.
THE COOKIE DOUGH
Roll dough into walnut sizes to obtain about 48 cookies. Double the size for larger cookies.
My cookie dough balls are “roughly” the size of walnuts.
Each dough ball is dipped in granulated sugar.
Dropped 2-3 drops of water on top of sugarcoated dough balls to create the crinkle effect while baking.
After baking, immediately remove from baking sheet and place on a cooling rack.
The warm cookies are crusty outside and soft inside.
