Molasses Cream Cookies

Tried another dessert recipe from my Taste of Home bake sale edition magazine. These cookies were soft and chewy and delicious. They went very quickly! I shrunk my recipe a bit because this one makes 8 dozen, but you may do what you like with them!


1-1/2 cups oil

2 cups sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1/2 cup light molasses

4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


1-1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

3 tablespoons butter, softened

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 to 2 tablespoons milk


In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and molasses. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

Roll into walnut-sized balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets (do not flatten). Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until done (centers will be slightly soft).

In a small bowl, beat frosting ingredients until creamy. Frost cookies while warm. Yield: about 8 dozen.
