Kick-Ass Molasses Cookies

What you need: 

1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup molasses
3 tablespoons Ener-G egg replacer
2 1/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar

What you do: 

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix brown sugar, oil, molasses, and egg substitute in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium. You can also mix with a spoon, but it's better when it's really whipped up.
2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients except the vegan sugar. Make tablespoon sized balls of dough and roll in the sugar.
3. Place cookies 1-2" apart on ungreased sheet.
4. Bake for 13 to 16 minutes or until set (appears dry). Let cool for 1 to 2 minutes and place on wire rack or a plate is fine as well.
Enjoy!!!!!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

This is the BEST cookie ever. I followed the recipe but used fresh ginger instead of ground, about 2 tsp of it, and they added a little juice to the cookie. Also, for decoration I added a spicy thai peanut sauce that was thick, and polished it off with a date or raisins on top...MMM! Merci!

HELP!
I've made this recipe 4 times now.  The first 2 times they were fabulous - the 3rd time they were really fluffy, still good, but not as satisfying as the first 2 batches.  Now... i am on my 4th batch as I type and they are turning out fluffy too! 

Where did I go wrong???  Could it be too much water added to the egg replacer??

These cookies were great, I used soy yogurt as an egg replacer (1/4 cup per egg) and they worked just fine. I also used pumpkin pie spice instead of the individual spices.

I also made a second batch with some oatmeal and a pinch of cocoa powder (wild idea, but it tasted great) added, they came out really yummy as well. Could have thrown in some raisins too, but alas, I was out.

These cookies are great!  I skipped the rolling in sugar part and sprinkled the top of each cookie with turbinado sugar instead.  Tastes like a chewy-on-the-outside-moist-on-the-inside gingersnap.

These turned out great! I am going to make more tonight and freeze them for Thanksgiving. My only problem was the the bottoms turned out crispy instead of chewy. Any suggestions on how to fix that problem?

If the bottoms are turning out crispy, it's your cookie sheet.  Is your sheet darkened?  Light is better, also, what are they made of?  Investing the $15-20 in some good cookie sheets can make a world of difference.  I use hollow core aluminum ones, and they work great.  Good luck!  Liz

This is a wonderful recipe! I did make some adjusments. I used 1/2 cup applesauce to replace the egg and I only used 1/2 cup oil. I only rolled half the cookies in sugar because my tooth is not as sweet as my husbands! We dipped them in apple cider and it was delicious!
I am actually making these for my holiday cookie trays!

My daughter (CeltKat on this site) had found some molasses-clove cookies that we love at Whole Foods so when we discovered this recipe we were curious to see how it compares. I'm happy to say, they are very comparable to the WF ones and delish. We did up the amount of cloves from 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon because we love the clove-y flavor.

I just made these tonight with some minor revisions and I thought they were great. I have a toddler so I am always trying stto reduce sugar. First I used whole wheat flour, second I only used 1/3 cup sugar, I also only used 1/3 cup oil and used a little over 1/3 cup applesauce. I didnt have any egg replacer so I just left it out! I also omited the rolled sugar on his half of the batch! They turned out very good! I'm sure not as sweet as intended to in the original recipe but they hit my sweet spot and my lil guy loved them and I didn't feel so nad letting him eat them without all the extra fat and sugar!!
