Tender Molasses Spice Cookies with Toasted Marshmallow Topping! A great cookie exchange recipe this holiday season.
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.
This is a great technique for frosting cookies in a hurry, and they taste absolutely amazing!
Molasses Spice Cookies with Toasted Marshmallow Topping would make an excellent addition to your Christmas cookie exchange this year.
Low maintenance. Big flavor and texture! You’ve got to try these cookies.
