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!
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 cup light molasses
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
- 1/2 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.
