Connie, from Mobile, Alabama was given the original molasses cookies recipe from her Grandma and over the years has tweaked it a bit to be a little more "dressed up." She makes them every year around the holidays!
What You'll Need:
- 1 1/2 cups butter-flavored shortening
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup dark molasses
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
- 4 teaspoons baking soda
- 4 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup turbinado sugar
- 3/4 pound vanilla-flavored coating
What To Do:
- In a large saucepan, melt shortening over low heat. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Once cooled, add sugar, molasses, and eggs, beating well.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Add dry ingredients to shortening mixture all at once and stir until well combined. Refrigerate until chilled.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cover baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Place turbinado sugar in a shallow bowl. Form dough into walnut-sized balls, roll in sugar, and place on prepared baking sheets.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until slightly browned around the edges and slightly soft in the middle. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Melt vanilla-flavored coating according to package directions. Dip cookies halfway into melted chocolate; shake off excess and place on wax paper-lined baking sheets to set.

Celebrate Mardi Gras with a New Orleans classic! Beignets are basically fritters, in that they're made from dough that's dropped into hot oil and deep-fried until golden and delicious. Before they're ready to be enjoyed our Mardi Gras Beignets are sprinkled with confectioners' sugar, just like they do in N'awlins!
