stone jar molasses cookies

Guess what? These cookies don’t have any sugar! (Which is a mild lie since they have molasses in them, but you don’t put in any extra sugar.) So they are healthy! (Depending on what you are comparing them to.)

Make them for yourself!

Heat 1 cup molasses to boiling point. Remove from heat.

Stir in 1/2 cup butter and 1 tsp baking soda. Then stir in 2 1/4 cups flour, 1 3/4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 tsp ginger.

Chill the dough. Roll out very thin (1/16″) Cut into shapes. Bake on parchment in 350 oven for 5-7 minutes or until set.

I probably underbaked these a tiny bit, so they were still a little soft. I think they are meant to be a little crispier, but I bet they are a treat either way.
