Calling For Christmas Cookie Recipes — 2011 (VII)

Christmas cookies made with molasses are a good change of pace — and a good way to introduce some dark, sticky goodness to your cookie mix.

Lace Cookies

Ingredients:  3/4 cup sugar; 1/2 cup light molasses; 1/3 cup water; 3/4 cup softened butter; 1 1/4 cups sifted flour; 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder; 1 1/4 teaspoons cinnamon; 1 cup chopped nuts

Baking:  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Combine sugar, molasses, water and butter in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil; remove from heat.  Stir until butter has melted.

Sift flour, baking bowder and cinnamon.  Fold into sugar mixture, then fold in nuts.  Drop mixture by tablespoons onto prepared sheets, leaving 3 inches between each. 

Bake 12 minutes.  Cool completely on parchment then carefully peel off.

  2. I just love this time of year. There are so many reasons to bake or make something mouth watering to eat. I like to make all of baked goods for Christmas. I try to make a new treat for everyone as a gift but I have not found one this year that I really want to do. Any good suggestions? Thanks for the post. Happy holidays:)
