Author Notes: My grandmother (she just turned 94) is from Berne, Switzerland and this is her recipe. She would use the smallest cookie cutters to make these cookies and I would spend hours in the kitchen helping her. My photo includes the cookies and my grandmothers rolling pin. Foodie-isms

Makes a lot

  • 1 bottle of dark Molasses
  • 1 bottle of light molasses
  • 1/2 pound butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 pound brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom (I use more)
  • 3 pounds flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  1. Mix molasses (both bottles), butter, eggs, brown sugar, and cardamom.
  2. Then add flour and baking soda and combine.
  3. Cover and put in refrigerator for 3 days.
  4. When you are ready to start baking (after the third day) roll out the dough onto a floured surface. Keep unused dough cold until ready to roll. Use cookie cutters to cut out your shaped cookies.
  5. Bake at 375 for 7 minutes. Larger cookies will take a bit longer to bake.

If I may just ask, when you say "a bottle of molasses", do you mean 12 oz?
