  • ½ cup softened butter
  • 1 ½ cups organic pure cane POWDERED sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 TB whole milk or cream


  • Cream the butter, molasses, and sugar with hand beaters.
  • Add the egg and beat through.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and combine – I start out with a spatula and finish it off with hand beaters to really get it all combined well.
  • Let the dough chill for an hour in the fridge – I split the dough up into 2 disks so it chills faster.
  • Knead the dough with your warm hands to make it pliable, roll out onto a rice floured surface, cut out your shapes, and place the shapes onto a silpat lined or parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.


  • Cream all of the frosting ingredients together until well combined. You can frost your cookies once they have cooled!
