Amish Christmas Cookies will for sure be on my list of Christmas cookies I absolutely must have for the holiday season. I love the aroma of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg (you can add some ground ginger if you like) combined with brown sugar and molasses. Make a little hole on top of each cookie and you can use them as a Christmas tree decoration as well!
- ½ cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup light molasses
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- Cream butter and sugar. Mix in egg and molasses.
- Sift dry ingredients together and stir into egg mixture.
- On lightly floured board, roll out dough and cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake in 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) preheated oven for about 10 minutes.

I don’t like food that’s too carefully arranged; it makes me think that the chef is spending too much time arranging and not enough time cooking. If I wanted a picture I’d buy a painting.
