These are our favorite Christmas cookies to make! We make a fresh batch almost every day over the holidays! And they’re quite easy to make 😀
In a mixer (this is the one I have: Amazon), mix together:
- 1 egg
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup melted butter or sunflower oil
- 1/2 cup molasses
In a separate bowl, combine:
- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- dash of nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp baking soda
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixer and mix on medium until it becomes a dough.
Wrap it in plastic wrap and chill dough for 2 hours (or overnight) in the fridge.
When you’re ready to make the cookies, just take the dough out of the fridge and grab little chunks of the dough to make little balls about an inch+ in diameter. Then roll them in white sugar and place them on a lined baking tray. Do *not* squish them, they should go into the oven as round balls. They’ll flatten as they bake.
Bake at 375 for 8-9 minutes.
