Baharat Chewy Molasses Cookies

Molasses cookies are such a treat. Delightfully moist and delightfully chewy, there’s no other cookie quite like them. You’ll find a wide range of recipes for these sweet and spicy snacks, containing ingredients ranging from cocoa powder to orange zest, and all sorts of spices in between!

Our humble contribution to the molasses cookie canon features the addition of Baharat. This Middle Eastern blend is traditionally used in savory dishes, but with its warm and sweet spices such as allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cardamom, we wondered how it would be in a cookie. It’s wonderful, as it turns out!

Alongside it’s signature seasoning, this recipe adds a bit of Valrhona cocoa powder to deepen the flavor of the cookie. It’s definitely a keeper, and too good not to share. Just be sure to make enough, because they’ll disappear pretty fast. You can share the recipe, too, since you can really never have too many recipes for a good cookie.

    Yes, one egg – thank you for catching that!

    These were excellent! A great way to use the Baharat that I purchased (at World Spice) for one recipe a while back, and have not used since. Instructions on when to add the vanilla also needs to be added.

    The texture is perfect when baked for 8 minutes in my oven. I really love that the flavor is familiar and unexpected at the same time. I’m going to make them for a brunch tea party but halve the barharat to make it a little more subtle for the unsuspecting guests.

    These were a hit! I made these last week, but subbed the cocoa powder for finely chopped pistachios. I will definitely try these again when I stock up on cocoa powder.
