Black Strap Molasses Cookie

Three molasses cookie recipes later.  Could this really be “the one”?

Black Strap Molasses Cookie







Yes!!  This is the one.

I’ve posted three other molasses cookie recipes here at The Joy of Caking and each of the cookies are all very good.  Each cookie has a distinct texture, and all are equally tasty, but this new recipe is (currently) my all-time favorite.

Check out these recipes and photo’s to see which cookie get’s your undivided attention.

    These definitely look like a keeper! They are pretty and look like they have the perfect amount of spice and molasses. It must be in the air…molasses cookie recipes! I have come across a few in the past few days! I like this one and will give it a try. A great fall recipe for the season that is just around the corner!
