“My children love spice cookies at any time. I think most children love them. I am enclosing a recipe that moms and dads can have their children help with during the baking at Christmas. Every child keeps their special memories of every day with the family and I sure remember mine from when I was a little girl.”

Original recipe yields 4 -5 dozen



  1. Beat the sugar, molasses, butter or margarine, and oil together. Add 2 cups of the flour and the baking soda, cloves, ginger, and cinnamon. Mix in the remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough is stiff. Flatten into disks and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick and use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes. Place cookies on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 minutes.

great cookies! I had too make up most of it because i used maple syrup unstead of sugar but they turned out great! As for them being deflated, one cut them thicker and 2 let them sit for a few min before eating, these have amazing taste thanks!



These cookies are also a family tradation. I am so glad the Carol submitted it. Everyone who loves Christmas should try these cookies. They are a taste of heaven!



The dough was marvelous - I'm sure at least a dozen cookies worth of dough ended up in my stomach - but the resulting cookies were deflated and underwhelming. Maybe she meant Baking POWDER instead of baking SODA? Maybe she meant 18 minutes instead of 8? Who knows. Needs some tinkering.
