And while we’re on a sugar kick here at What’s Gaby Cooking, I wanted to share my favorite recipe of all times.
This one comes from Omi, my grandma. She makes these like it’s her job, so does my mom, and now I make them all the time too. There’s something really therapeutic about rolling balls of cookie dough in sugar. It brightens my day.
This molasses cookie recipe is simple. There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it. Nothing too crazy – but the result is a perfectly moist (yes, I realize it’s the worst word in the history of our language) cookie with a little snappy sugar coating. When I was in pastry school we adjusted molasses cookie recipes and experimented with all sorts of different things in the cookies, additional spices, the whole nine yards… and nothing was as good as this one!
So whip up a double batch of these and store them in the freezer for the next few weeks while you’re prepping for the holidays! Grab a few when you’re sweet tooth strikes and warm them up a bit in the microwave just so you can pretend you’re eating a cooking fresh outta the oven. They are pure perfection – I promise!
