When I was growing up in New England, my mom used to make homemade baked beans from scratch several times a year. For those of you who have never had real New England baked beans, you start with a bag of dried beans, salt pork, brown sugar and lots of molasses. Every time my mom got out the jar of molasses, I was right there at her elbow with my spoon ready to grab a huge dollop for my mouth! Molasses reminds me of home…it reminds me of my grandparent’s house with their cookie jar full of molasses cookies and it reminds me of the holidays in New England. The holidays should be a time to make memories with your family and friends so I decided to share this very easy molasses cookie recipe with you all today. Hopefully it will bring back good holiday memories for you, too!
Mmmmm…molasses cookies! YUM!

I am a firm believer in the idea that your baked goods are only as good as the quality of the ingredients that you put into them. I always use real butter, organic eggs, and high quality spices. Don’t cut corners when making your holiday treats….egg substitutes and ‘butter like spread’ does NOT belong in holiday cookies! Instead, use the good stuff and stick to only one or two cookies instead of twelve! Your mouth will thank you for it!
I chose to use India Tree Sprinkles on my molasses cookies. They are naturally dyed with no artificial flavors or colors. You can use whatever sprinkles you have in the house and they will taste just fine. I dipped half of these and the other half I left as plain molasses cookies. They taste delicious either way. The easiest way to melt white chocolate is in a small double boiler. That way you don’t have to worry about the chocolate getting too hot and burning or turning lumpy.
