Taste: 4 out of 5

Difficulty: 1 out of 5

Ingredients
• 3/4 cup margarine, melted (1215 cal)
• 1 cup white sugar (780 cal)
• 1 egg (70 cal)
• 1/4 cup molasses (245 cal)
• 2 cups all-purpose flour (910 cal)
• 2 teaspoons baking soda mixed with 1 tbsp apple vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2 teaspoon ground orange zest
• 1/2 cup white sugar (390 cal)
Total: 30 cookies, 3610 cal, 120 cal / cookie

Directions
1. Combine all the ingredients using a mixer. Cover, and chill dough for 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and roll them in the remaining white sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until tops are cracked. Cool on wire racks.

Afterthoughts
These cookies are very soft and chewy, but it seems I am not a huge fan of molasses. I will try them next time with brown sugar instead :-)

These look so light. Interesting about the molasses and that you used margarine. I bet the flavour as a result is wonderful - my granny nearly always baked with margarine and I can still remember the taste of her Scottish biscuits.

I've been reading a lot about Molasses cookies and I've been very curious about this one because I have Molasses in my pantry that my husband bought, but he only used once and kept it in the pantry...and taking out too much space. =) Looks delicious cookies though. How come they are not so common? So strange.

I can't wait to try this. The recipe looks easy and quick. I was looking to find a way to use up the molasses at home.
