The BEST Christmas Cookie Ever

The BEST Christmas Cookie Ever Recipe

These are my favorite cookies to make for the family at Christmas time!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies


2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon salt

¾ cup butter, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 large egg

¼ cup molasses

1 tablespoon water

2 tablespoons white sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Set 2 tablespoons sugar in a small bowl; set aside.

Sift together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a bowl.

Cream butter and remaining 1 cup sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, then stir in molasses and water.

Gradually stir the sifted ingredients into the molasses mixture until well combined.

Use floured hands to shape dough into 24 walnut-sized balls.

Roll each ball in the reserved sugar until coated.

Place cookies 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets, and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.

Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes,  and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before moving them.

And I don't know about you, but sometimes, I just want my home to smell like gingerbread cookies without all the calories. If this sounds like you, you will love our  Christmas Cookie Scented Candle The warm soft sugary scent enhanced with holiday spices is to die for.

Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
