Just Like Starbucks Molasses Cookies

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

A few years ago, on an afternoon trip to Starbucks, I decided to break from my usual coffee-only habit. I ordered a Chai Latte and a molasses cookie. While I loved the latte, nothing could break my coffee loyalty. However, I fell in love with the molasses cookie. I knew I had to find a way to duplicate that recipe.

It took some trial and error, and a few complete flops, until I came up with this winning combination. These cookies are a huge favorite in our house, even with all of the kids.


Just Like Starbucks Molasses Cookies

  • 3/4 c. butter or margarine
  • 1 c. brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. blackstrap molasses (or 1/2 c. plain molasses)
  • 2 1/2 c. flour (You can use any combination white/whole wheat flour)
  • 2 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • 1/2 t. ginger
  • For rolling dough – 1/2 c. white sugar

1. Cream the butter or margarine and brown sugar together until fluffy. Add the egg and molasses and beat for an additional minute.

2. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Sift or stir with a fork or whisk for 30 seconds.

3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Cover dough and refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours, until firm.

4. Roll heaping tablespoons of dough into a ball, then roll through white sugar. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes.


This process will result in light, cake-like cookies. If you prefer crispier cookies, flatten the sugar-coated balls of dough slightly with your palm or the bottom of a glass.
