Tasteful Tuesday: Ginger-Molasses Bars

Tuesday, February 5th, 2019

The molasses cookie – and molasses itself – is a historically favorite treat (and ingredient). We felt like our collection of recipes here on the blog really needed a molasses dessert, so here is a great ginger-molasses bar recipe.

What You’ll Need:

  • Molasses1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch of ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 ¼ cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¼ cup unsulfured molasses

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 10×15 inch rimmed baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper, and grease the pan and parchment. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt until combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Beat on medium speed for several minutes, until smooth and creamy. Add egg, yolk, and molasses. Beat to combine, scraping the sides of the bowl if necessary. With the mixer on low, gradually add in the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (dough will be thick).
  4. Spread evenly onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the sheet halfway through the cooking time. Place the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into squares and enjoy.
