If you’re looking for something simple to make for friends and family for Christmas this year this is it!! This molasses cookie recipe comes out of one of my grandma’s old church ward recipe books. If you know about these recipe books, you KNOW. Some of the best recipes originated from those books.
These are the perfect cookie to dress up for the holidays and give out to friends, neighbors, coworkers, and family. My sisters and I love to hit up Walmart the day after Christmas to stock up on cute holiday tins, bags, tags, and more for 50% off. It’s become a fun tradition for us and it’s always so nice to just pull these out of storage the next holiday season when we need them.

This is the first time I dipped these in white chocolate. I thought it would be so cute for Christmas. I’ve seen it done before, and my beloved Suss Cookie Co. sells them this way. As much as I love to bake, I also love to order Suss Cookies and keep them in my freezer. FYI- they ship nation wide!
A few tips if you decide to make these as gifts this year:
- Don’t skip refrigerating the dough overnight. It really does make a difference.
- Use a food scale to weigh out the dough for each cookie. #1. It makes for evenly cooked cookies. #2. It makes it easier to package in your boxes and bags when they’re all the same size.
- Don’t overcook your cookies. Once they start to crackle, take them out of the oven!
- Let them cool completely before dipping or drizzling them in the chocolate.
- Don’t try to use white chocolate chips, it doesn’t set right and you’ll have a mess. You need to buy candy dipping chocolate. Walmart sells it in the baking isle.
If you give these a try this holiday season tag me on Instagram so I can see! I love seeing you guys make my recipes! Tagging me so I can re share is one of the easy way to show us your support for SFM. Thank you!
