Recipe Ingredients for Cinnamon-Orange Molasses Cookies

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon finely grated orange zest
1 large egg
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Cinnamon-Orange Molasses Cookies

  1. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.

  2. Beat butter, sugar, and orange zest with a mixer on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Beat in egg, molasses, honey, and vanilla. Reduce speed to low, and gradually add flour mixture, beating until just combined. Shape dough into a disk, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate for 1 hour.

  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a generously floured piece of parchment, roll dough to 1/8 inch thick. Cut out desired shapes, and space 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.

  4. Bake cookies for 6 minutes. Remove sheets and tap firmly on counter to flatten cookies. Return to oven, rotating sheets from front to back, and continue to bake until crisp and lightly browned, about 6 minutes more. Let cool slightly on sheets, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
