  • 1-1/4 cups sugar divided
  • 12 tbsp butter softened
  • 2-1/4 cups flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt

For molasses glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp whole milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    In a large bowl cream 1 cup sugar and butter. Add in one egg and molasses and beat to combine.

      In a separate bowl add flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Mix to combine and gradually add to wet ingredients.

        Using a cookie scoop or by hand roll into balls. Using the remaining ¼ cups sugar, pour into a bowl and roll each cookie ball. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 11 minutes.

          If glazing cookies: add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to combine. Allow cookies to cool slightly and then drizzle over the top of cookies and allow glaze to firm up. Serve with milk.
