  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4¾ cups of flour
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 cup Crosby’s Fancy Molasses


  • In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar. Whisk in the eggs one at a time.In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, ginger and cinnamon.
  • Add half the flour mixture to the butter mixture, then the molasses and milk, then the remaining flour mixture. Mix until combined then gather the dough into a ball and cut it in two.
  • Chill the dough for an hour or overnight, if you have time.

When you’re ready to bake the cookies:


  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll dough about 1/4“ inch thick and cut into rounds about the size of your cookie stamps.
  • Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 5 minutes, remove from the oven and quickly press the cookie stamp into each of the cookies. Return to the oven for 3-5 more minutes.
  • If you’re not using a cookie press just bake your cut out cookies for 8-10 minutes.
