Frosted Molasses Cookies

Frosted Molasses Cookies Recipe - Triple Chocolate Kitchen

Do you like cookies that just melt in your mouth?  The Frosted Molasses Cookies have a wonderful molasses flavor and they can frosted and decorated for whatever season it is.

These cookies are Jessica’s favorites. She came over to take some pictures so I sent some home with her. (Note from Jess: That container lasted about two seconds before it was empty. YUM!)


Make sure you get a mild flavored unsulphured baking molasses to use in the cookies. One time I didn’t have any baking molasses and I used golden table syrup. It just didn’t taste right.

A great recipe!
