Bonus points for rolling that cookie in granulated sugar.
These cookies are softer and more cakey than the molasses cookies I made last year. They have a beautiful balance of molasses flavor, spice and sugar without being overly sweet or spicy!
And there is no cardamom! Are you surprised? I was on a little two day cardamom spree. 😉
They do not keep as well as some of the other cookies that I made and were best eaten the day or day after they were made. Definitely not ideal for shipping to loved ones. [If that is what you need, try these, or these, or these!]
This recipe is from The Good Housekeeping Cookbook 1955 edition. Another win for heritage cookbooks!
