Chewy Pumpkin Spice Molasses Cookies - The Secret Recipe Club - #Recipe

It's December (already?), and time for another great blog and recipe from The Secret Recipe Club!

Secret Recipe Club

What's the secret? Participants are assigned a blog, they can go through recipes, drool over posts and photos till a recipe can be chosen to try. The "Ta-dah!" reveal is kept secret until today.  Sound like fun? This is the brain-child of Amanda from Amanda’s Cookin’, and you can join up, see the other blogs involved and get all the deets at The Secret Recipe Club blog.

This month I had the honor of selecting a recipe from Daily Dish Recipes. With the holidays coming up, I was searching for a delicious holiday inspired treat! Nicole's blog did not disappoint. I fell in love with her Chewy Pumpkin Spice Molasses Cookies instantly. My Mom was visiting us and I knew she always enjoyed a good spice cookie.

If you have never taken a peek around Nicole's blog before, I urge you to stop by. She also blogs about food and family with some fabulous looking recipes.

So, how about those cookies? They would make a great addition to your holiday goodies.

You Will Need: 
3/4 c. butter, softened 
2 c. sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. molasses
2 tsp. vinegar
3 3/4 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

Cream the butter and sugar. Give it a good 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl mid-way through, but let it really cream.

Add the eggs and incorporate fully. Then add molasses and blend well. Also add the vinegar and mix again.

Mmm... I just adore the smell of molasses. All warm, spicy and good.

In a separate bowl sift together the dry ingredients.

Then add the dry ingredients to the wet. Add the dry mix a 1/2 c. at a time at low speed. Scrape down the bowl to get all of it mixed well.

Scoop the cookies and place them on a lined cookies sheet, or on Silpat. Sprinkle them with sugar and bake for 9-10 minutes.

With a glass of milk, Santa would be happy to feat on these Christmas Eve! 

I hope you enjoy them. If you do, stop by Nicole's blog, Daily Dish Recipes to leave a little comment love.

I would love hear what Christmas cookies you will be making this year?
