12 Weeks of Christmas Treats-Spiced Molasses Crisps


It is week 11 of 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats hosted by Brenda over at Meal Planning Magic.  By now you certainly should have many wonderful new recipes added to your recipe arsenal.
I am continuing to post recipes made with Holiday Cookie Mix.  At our house a holiday goodie plate would not be complete without  a molasses cookie.  Hubby loves spicy cookies.  This is the first recipe from the third batch of cookie mix.  I will post a brownie recipe on my Saturday sweets post, and the last 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats recipe next week.  After that I will post additional recipes on Saturday sweets until I have run out of mix.

This cookie is like a molasses and spice sugar cookie.  The amount of spices in these are a bit assertive but can be reduced for a milder flavor.

I use my usual cookie scoop and get about 2 dozen large cookies.  For more cookies, drop dough in smaller amounts.  It may be necessary to shorten the baking time. 

Spiced Molasses Crisps
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ginger
1/2 t. allspice
1 egg, room temperature
1/4 c molasses
1 t. vanilla

Place cookie mix in a mixing bowl and add spices.  Mix well.  Break egg into a 1-cup glass measuring cup and beat well.  Add molasses and vanilla to egg and mix well.  Stir into dry ingredients.  Cover and chill dough at least 1 hour.  Drop by teaspoonsful onto parchment-lined baking sheet.  Flatten with the bottom of a glass that has been greased and dipped in sugar.  Bake at 375 degrees 8 to 10 minutes.  Let stand on baking sheet 1 minute.  Remove to rack to cool.  Makes 2 dozen.

The last postings for 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats will be next Thursday.  If you haven't joined in but want to share a special recipe with us, you can find all the details here.

Check all the great recipes posted this week.


  1. Ohh I love molasses cookies, but have never had crisps. These look delicious!

  2. The cookies look delicious. Perfect recipe for Christmas.

  3. I usually choose soft chewy cookies over crispy but I don't think I'd be able to pass these over! They look delicious! And the flavour of molasses just can't be beat at Christmas time.
