Molasses Chocolate Chip Cookies [Chewy]
If you’re a fan of chocolate chip cookies made with brown sugar, then this recipe is for you.
It’s a classic chocolate chip cookie, with a twist. These molasses chocolate chip cookies are rich, delicious, and packed with flavour, without the use of brown sugar. If you’re worried about losing the classic texture of traditional chocolate chip cookies, don’t! These molasses chocolate chip cookies are so scrumptious, you won’t miss the brown sugar.
This recipe comes from a reader, Annemarie, who adapted an old Crosby’s recipe for quick ginger cookies into what has become her favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe. Honestly, it’s become my favourite recipe as well.
Deliciously overwhelmed by chocolate chips these soft chewy molasses chocolate chip cookies remind me that a classic chocolate chip cookie is still the epitomy of comfy baked goods that remind me of home.
Some of this batch will get tucked into a care parcel for my son who is off at camp for two weeks, living in a tent and canoeing all over Southwestern New Brunswick. I’m thinking they’d be yummy with campfire-toasted marshmallows.
If you prefer your molasses chocolate chip cookies to be a little thicker and slightly cake-like then reduce the molasses to ¼ cup.
I’ll give you free rein on the chocolate chips. Annemarie adds 2 full cups but I used 1 1/3 cups in this batch. I also baked them as drop cookies.Print
