A Family Forever Series by @DonnaFaz and a Cookie #Recipe

When the weather is cold and blustery, I love the smell of warm cookies fresh out of the oven. These cookies, rich with molasses, cinnamon, and ginger, are scrumptious and perfect with tea and a good book!

Marvelous Molasses Cookies

1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
¾ cup butter, softened
⅓ cup molasses
1 egg
2 ⅓ cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375º.

Cream the brown sugar and butter. Add molasses and egg, and beat to incorporate. Stir in the flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt until thoroughly combined. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake until just set, between 10-12 minutes. Makes about 4 dozen mouthwatering cookies.

Now that the cookies are baked, brew yourself a cup of hot tea and snuggle up with my latest sweet romance novel, A BEAUTIFUL STRANGER. This is the first book of my A Family Forever Series. Available in these fine stores:

US Kindle        UK Kindle

Book 2 of the series, MADE IN PARADISE, will be out soon!

  1. Cookies look great, Donna and so does your Made In Paradise series. Good luck with your upcoming release.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, Donna. I haven't used molasses in years, so will want to try this. And, best wishes on your latest novel--sounds great.

  3. These cookies sound amazing! One of my favorite recipes is a spice cookie that has nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves. Yum! I'm adding this recipe to my list of must tries!
