These chewy syrup biscuits are irresistibly delicious. The best syrup biscuits are hard, soft and full of herbs such as cinnamon, ginger and cloves. These old-fashioned spicy ginger biscuits are all that holiday biscuits should be.

If you look like me, you probably have cookies for the holidays. This cookie brings back all nostalgia. This ginger biscuit recipe is a popular party in our house.

When I was a kid, my mom used to make this recipe every year. If you’ve read for a while, you’ll know that I grew up in a military family, and that we were away from the family for many years during the holidays.

The holiday biscuits were just one of the ways we felt a little closer to those who were gone.

My sister-in-law renamed the photos. It looks like a ginger clap, but it’s soft and hard.

These cookies are drip cookies that you make in sugar before baking. The result is a delicious biscuit with a sugar glaze, filled with festive spices.

What you like about this recipe

  • It’s a simple recipe for Christmas cookies.

Recipes Note

Molasses biscuits are a simple biscuit recipe. They are rolled in sugar before being cooked. These biscuits have a classic twisted outer texture.


  • Butter: In this recipe I use unsalted oil. But my grandmother used to shorten butter. You can use the one that suits you best. If you shorten it, you get crunchy cookies.
  • Sugar: I use organic cane sugar, which has a slightly stronger caramel flavour than white sand sugar.
  • Rolling sugar: Use sand sugar or Turbinado sugar if you want crispy sugar outside. You can also add finely chopped ginger to the sugar before sprinkling the cookie dough. It gives you a stronger ginger flavor. Ginger candies give the liver a nice chewy texture from the outside.
  • Flour: Normal all-purpose flour is sparsely sown. You can replace wholemeal flour or even rye flour with a flour with a stronger taste.
  • Bullets: Always at room temperature.
  • The herbs: Cinnamon, ginger, cloves.
  • Molasses: Use molasses without sulphur. You can use a lighter or molasses with a full flavour. That depends on your taste.
  • Baking soda: Baking with bicarbonate of baking soda works like yeast.
  • Salt: I use kosher salt. Stay away from iodized salt.

Step-by-step instructions

One of my favorite things about these soft molasses biscuits is the smell that fills the house during baking.

  1. Mix all dry ingredients together. Put the flour, soda, salt and spices in a large bowl and put them aside.
  2. Mix the sugar and butter. Melt the butter in the jar. Add molasses and sugar to the melted butter. Mix the oil, sugar and molasses and heat until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Take the butter and sugar. Pour the butter and sugar mixture into the bowl of your blender. Mix it with the paddle support.
  4. Add the egg. Add an egg to the mixture and beat again.
  5. Add the dry ingredients. Turn off the blender and add the dry ingredient mixture. Mixing into flour and herbs are included.
  6. Opaque and cool. Cool the cookie dough for a few hours.
  7. Heat the oven. Preheat the oven on 350℉. Place a number of cookie sheets in the row with parchment paper.
  8. Make cookie dumplings. Place a sugar bowl inside to roll the biscuits. Use a biscuit tin or teaspoon to form balls with a diameter of about one and a half centimetres. Fold it in neat balls and throw it in a bowl of sugar.
  9. The oven. Bake in the oven for 8 to 10 minutes. The cookies are gonna explode a little. You want them to be swollen, with a slightly golden-brown edge. Cooling on the net.

Frequently asked questions and expert advice

Why did the syrup biscuits expire?

Moisture from oil and molasses can spread these biscuits. You can raise the flower if your dough is too flat. I found that using the greasier European butter in this recipe resulted in a flatter liver.

What’s the difference between a ginger bowl and molasses cakes?

There are two main differences between the ginger pancakes and the molasses cakes. The first molasses is chewed and the ginger biscuits are crispy. The second ginger recipe usually contains more ginger than molasses.

Can I convert the cooking fat into molasses biscuits?

Cooking oil and fat can be used in this recipe. My grandmother always used butter pants. I try to stay away from hydrogenated oils, so I use oil.

Possible amendments

  • Ginger Candy – In this recipe you can use finely chopped ginger candy.
  • Icing – If you want to make cookies with a molasses icing, I will put the icing recipe on the recipe card.
