25 Min



1 1/2 c
dark brown sugar
1/2 c
hot water
stir dark brown sugar and water to mix well, then let sit while you prepare other ingredients for baking your cookies, stir well before using!



1 1/2 c
dark brown sugar
3 stick
real butter, softened
1 1/2 c
homemade molasses


6 3/4 c
all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp
3 1/2 tsp
baking powder
4 1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon
4 tsp
ground ginger
3 tsp
ground cloves
1 1/2 tsp
ground nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp
baking soda
1/4 tsp
black pepper


4 c
powder sugar
4 Tbsp
4 Tbsp
corn syrup, light
2 tsp
almond or vanilla extract


1First put all the dry ingredients except sugar in to a bowl and sift. You will see here all my dry ingredients before I sift them.
2Next start by creaming butter and dark brown sugar.
3Keep mixer going and scraping sides down add the eggs one at a time until mixed well, then add the homemade molasses, start adding dry ingredients, add approximately 3 cups if possible and then remove from stand mixer and pour in rest of flour and try to stir somewhat.
4Pour out on to your table and just kinda knead the dough till its completely mixed.
5Try to roll your dough in to much better sized logs than I did lol and then put in the fridge till tomorrow.
6Preheat the oven to 375 and begin slicing your logs of cookie dough.
7Remember if you want to double these and you made big logs like I did, just cut your pieces in half like this.
8You'll get lots of cookies and they make great gifts.
9Bake for 8 or 9 minutes just depends on your oven and pans.
10This makes a nice big batch of cookies, two gallon sized bags full.
11Next the icing. Mix together the powder sugar and the milk until well incorporated, then add the corn syrup and extract mix well. If to thick add a little more corn syrup. Dip cookies until coated, you may need to use a small spatula or spoon to spread evenly. That's it Cookies Galore!!
