Soft Molasses Cookies are a traditional molasses cookie recipe with a chewy soft center and crunchy, sugar-coated outside for a perfect holiday sweet! If you are looking to change up your Christmas cookie line-up this year, these molasses cookies will be an unexpected hit. The flavor and texture are phenomenal and they are so easy to make!
I cranked out a batch of these, which makes a few dozen, in about an hour. I enjoyed a couple of cookies for myself and threw the rest in the freezer for Christmas. These freeze great so you can easily make them ahead of time and avoid having to bake all your cookies during the mad dash in the last week before the holiday. But seeing we are currently in that mad dash and you are checking out this cookie recipe, that likely means that you will be doing some baking in the near future. 😉
