The BEST Giant Chewy Molasses Cookies!

 

Giant Chewy Molasses Cookies have to be one of my all time favorite cookies!  Every holiday season my grandma’s kitchen would fill with the scent of these delicious cookies and we would all wait eagerly to grab one fresh from the oven.  I think these are mine and my uncle’s favorite cookies she makes well besides her Noel Balls, man I love holiday cookies lol.

While she makes her molasses cookies regular size I thought it would be fun to super size them and make these giant cookies! There is just something about a big cookie that makes you have to have one! Plus their large size makes them perfect for sharing, not that you will want to lol.

These cookies are chewy and so flavorful! They are not a hard cookie or a cakey cookie both of which are bleh in my book.  These are perfectly chewy and it is what makes them so irresistible!

I actually cut back on the amount of cinnamon and ginger in most molasses cookie recipes because I really want the molasses flavor to shine through.

I don’t want my molasses cookies to taste like gingerbread or else I would just make gingerbread cookies lol.

This is a really simple cookie recipe and great alternative to the same old sugar cookies that come around during the holidays. I know Santa would love to find these with a tall glass of cold milk on Christmas Eve!

A plate of these delicious cookies are a must have at every holiday get together and they make a great gift to give a hostess or neighbor!

So this holiday season (or any time of the year really) if you want a flavorful, chewy, giant cookie that will wow everyone and become your new favorite look no further than these Giant Chewy Molasses Cookies, they are amazing!!

Can I make these regular size?

Of course!! I like a giant cookie for the wow factor but feel free to make them whatever size you like, just adjust baking time accordingly (keep an eye on them)

Can I frost or glaze these?

Sure! Just use your favorite glaze or frosting recipe and go to town!  They are also a welcome twist on holiday sugar cookies so feel free to use some festive sprinkles.
