Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter or margarine, brown sugar and molasses until smooth. Blend in water. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture; blend well.
  2. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Cut out paper stars, bells, or other christmas motifs. Trace onto a sheet of aluminum foil.

I just made cookies like (I used my usual cut-out recipe) this and it took till the 5th tray to get them off the pan. I used tin foil covered with nonstick spray. After I had the cookie on the pan, I covered the "opening" with more spray before filling with a whole Jolly Rancher (works better than lifesavers). After baking just till the candy melts, slide the whole sheet of tin foil off the pan and let the cookies cool completely. Turn the cookies upside down and peel off the foil. This is what finally worked for us. The results are beautiful!

These cookies are fabulous! I made them to take to my neighborhood cookie exchange and won first prize! I had made similar cookies about ten years ago, so was thrilled to "rediscover" the recipe. Instead of rolling dough into ropes, I used a large house cookie cutter and cut out smaller shapes inside. I also used Lifesavers instead of sourballs. Some of the houses resembles churches, some were schoolhouses, etc. The effect was truly charming. I would recommend this recipe to anyone, as they are not particularly difficult to make.
