Soft Molasses Sugar Cookies

Anna Mae Kantor Recipe

By Anna Mae Kantor bluelady

This recipe is from my own personal hand written and typed loose-leaf cookbook. I have no idea where it came from or who gave it to me. I must have it for 45 years or more.

I just know from my own experience, that if you don't use Brer Rabbit green label molasses, they flop.

These are my husband Jeff's favorite cookie and he asks for them often. I always make a double or triple batch because they go so fast.

Hope you enjoy them !!

Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 to 9 minutes. Do not overbake or they will be too crunchy. Cookies will be kind of soft in the middle when you take them out of the oven. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before putting them on a paper towel to cool. Store in tightly closed container.
