I'm all about the healthy stuff. But, this time of year I have to pull out a recipe that my family LOVES. Once a year isn't going to hurt a thing. :)


  • 3/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients together. Beat the sugar with the butter, egg and molasses. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl. Preheat oven to 375. I scoop them into 1 tablespoon size balls and bake about 8-10 minutes. This will be personal preference. Some people like them chewier, and others like them crispy.

Recipe Notes

I hope they are enjoyed in other homes as much as here. :)
