Kathy Hanks' Molasses-Ginger Cookies


My friend got these from a co-worker after her and her husband has a hankering for a really good molasses cookie. I decided to make them today for an open house graduation party and I could not believe how addictive they were. Even strangers were coming up to me asking for the recipe and the people at our table kept coming back with handfuls and the excuse that they just couldn't stay away! They are soft inside with a slightly hard sugar crust on the outside! WATCH OUT!


  • 2 2/3 cups oil
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 6 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 2/3 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/3 teaspoons ground ginger

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and refrigerate for about 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Roll dough into balls the size of walnuts. Roll balls in sugar and press down SLIGHTLY on a cookie sheet, spacing 2 inches (they will expand) and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Cool for about 1 minute on cookie sheet and transfer to wire rack.

Makes about 4-5 dozen but I didn't count!

They will stay chewy even if left out for a while.
