Everyone needs a classic cookie cutter recipe for the holidays.

It’s that recipe you go back to year after year for fun holiday cut-outs to share with friends and family.

For some it’s a simple roll-out sugar cookie recipe. For other it’s a gingerbread recipe.

For me, my Molasses Spice Cookies with Toasted Marshmallow Topping is the recipe I go back to again and again.

More tender than gingerbread, and lighter than a standard molasses cookie, these Molasses Spice Cookies are a grand platform for holiday cookie decorating. They are kind of like a sugar cookie with a kick!

You can glaze or frost these cookies and decorate to your heart’s content. They make the best tasting “gingerbread” men around, even though they aren’t technically gingerbread.

In this case, I used marshmallow fluff as the topping to create a toasted marshmallow effect that balances the spice flavor.

I spread the marshmallow fluff over the cookies and placed them under the broiler for 30 seconds to toast. The result was a delightfully light frosting with a crisp toasted exterior.

A perfect complement to the spice cookies.
