A soft molasses cookie that’s satisfying and wholesome.




  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl cream butter and sugar. Beat in molasses and egg.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk the flours, spices, and salt.
  4. Combine the hot water and baking soda in a little cup and give it a stir. Pour into the butter mixture, making sure to scrape out the baking soda residue. Stir to combine.
  5. Add the dry ingredients and stir until incorporated.

To shape the paws*:

  1. Using a medium cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon of dough, make the middle of the paws. Using a  teaspoon measure, make four toes. (This will get easier once you have done a few.)
  2. Bake 10-12 minutes, until puffy and set.
  3. Let cookies cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
