This recipe make some of the most delicious molasses cookies...with a heart felt surprise! Make these for your Valentine to say how much you appreciate them. Enjoy!


  • 3/4 C. Brown Sugar (Packed)
  • 1/4 C. Molasses
  • 1 Tbsp. White Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 C. Vegetable Shortening
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 1/8 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 2 & 1/4 C. Flour
  • 3 Tbsp. Red Colored Sugar or Plain White, Granulated Sugar


In a stand or hand mixer cream together all the ingredients minus the flour & colored sugar. Then, slowly add in the flour until everything is incorporated. The mixture will resemble children's play dough. See image below.

Extract approx. 2 Tbsp. worth of dough and form into a ball using your hands. Dip the dough into the colored sugar and position them 2 inches apart on a non-stick baking sheet. Form the dough spheres into the shape of a heart. It's homemade, so don't worry about it being perfect.

Bake the cookies in a 325 degree (preheated) oven for exactly 13 minutes. Let cool completely on a baking rack before devouring them or serving them to your loved ones! ...Nom nom nom! :)

They are definitely homemade! ;)

If you prefer the original cookie shape, simply use granulated sugar rather than colored sugar, and leave in circle shape.

Happy Valentine's Day!
