How To Make Molasses Sandwich Cookies

A light and creamy buttery filling offer a nice contrast to the deep flavors of molasses in this easy recipe for sandwich cookies.

Preparation: 50 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Cool Time: 25 minutes
Total: 1 hour 30 minutes



  • cupsall purpose flour
  • ½tspbaking soda
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • ½tspsalt
  • 1cuplight brown sugar,packed
  • ½cupunsalted butter
  • 1large egg
  • ¼cuplight molasses,unsulfured
  • creamy molasses filling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.

  2. In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until combined. Beat in egg, then molasses, until smooth. On low speed, gradually add flour mixture until a dough forms.

  3. Drop rounded measuring teaspoonfuls of dough onto two ungreased (or parchment-lined) baking sheets, about 1½ inches apart.

  4. Bake until centers are dry to the touch, 12 to 15 minutes; rotate pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Cool 1 minute on baking sheets; then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

Molasses Filling:

  1. Whisk 12 tablespoons softened unsalted butter with 3 tablespoons light unsulfured molasses until smooth. Gradually whisk in 2 cups confectioners’ sugar; whisk until smooth and spreadable.

  2. Spread a rounded measuring teaspoonful of Creamy Molasses Filling on the flat side of a cookie; place another cookie on top, and gently press.

  3. Repeat until all cookies are filled. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 day, or refrigerate up to 3 days (cookies may soften during refrigeration).
