Molasses Crinkle Cookies

Molasses is a byproduct of sugar production: the juice from the sugar cane is repeatedly boiled to promote sugar crystallization. The third boil yields the blackstrap molasses most people know, with its dark color and robust flavor. Molasses is also used to make brown sugar by adding it to refined white sugar. In this cookie the molasses takes the foreground, backed by a variety of spices to give a well rounded cookie with a soft and chewy texture.
