Old Fashioned Molasses Cookies

Sunday, October 18, 2020
The smell of old-fashioned molasses cookies baking is just a fabulous childhood memory that I to remember my mom baking them back in the late 1960s.

The soft chewy molasses cookie with the flavors of cinnamon and spice makes them totally addicting and unforgettable.

It was very hard to let them cool down before taking a bite out of one after smelling their fragrant aroma while baking they're so delicious.

These are still a family favorite and never make it to the cookie jar they're gone so fast.

I also have been told many times these cookies taste a lot like the famous Archway cookies you find in most supermarkets today.

Back in Central N.Y. with the first snowfall and the holidays upon us, I looked forward to knowing these were number one on mom's holiday cookie list to bake.

Sometime around the age of 6, I also remember mom's friends always had a plate of these on their tables too, it must have been one of the most popular cookies to make back then!

If you love molasses do try these and some of our other family old style favorites like Pumpkin Spice, Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies, and of course the Everything Cowboy Cookie.
