Iced Molasses Cookies- – The classic molasses cookie topped with a smooth powdered sugar glaze. A great addition to your holiday dessert table or for a simple weeknight dessert.
- Flour + Baking soda + Ground cinnamon
- Egg white
- Powdered sugar
Any type ( black, light, blackstrap, etc) will do the trick with these cookies. It just depends on your taste preference. As a guide, the lighter your molasses, the sweeter it is. See the recipe card for the brand I used.
If desired, you can use brown sugar for these.
The original recipe calls for ginger, allspice and cloves. Honestly, I didn’t have these on hand, so, I omitted them and stuck with just ground cinnamon. If you desire, you can add these to your cookies for additional flavor.
Keep any leftovers in a covered container. You can store them at room temperature or in the refrigerator. If you refrigerate them, they will stay good for a bit longer.
Can I Freeze These?
Yes. Let them cool completely. Then, store in an airtight, freezer safe, covered container or storage bag. They will be good for a couple of months.
