Molasses Cinnamon Chip Cookies with a Cinnamon Drizzle. Perfect for fall or winter cookie platters. And they stay so soft!!

There are few things that I hate. I’m super easy-going and generally a very go-with-the-flow kind of gal, but there are a few things that I just can’t stand.

1. My inability to create a good-looking cookie

2. Dumb tasks that take time and ultimately take me away from my friends and family

3. Piles of baking dishes that need to be scrubbed for what seems like forever

Seriously, I have had so many issues baking cookies in the past. They either spread out all across the pan so they’re practically see-through. Or they’ll just end up hard as a rock. I have just never had great luck with cookies. Dealing with cookie mishaps during the holiday season is the last thing I have time for, when I would much rather be spending time with my dear family. On top of that, who wants to be scrubbing dishes after a recipe fail when they could be playing games with all the cousins? Definitely not me!

So when I was contacted to try out Pam Cooking Spray to help me solve some of my most hated kitchen nuances with their Smart Tips, I was definitely interested. One of my first thoughts though was, what about that cooking spray build-up you get all over your cookie sheets and baking pans? I was quickly assured that with Pam’s “99% Less Residue” product line, this wasn’t going to be an issue. Score! I was absolutely in on this test.

I set off to create cookies. Of course, I had to pick the stickiest cookies I’ve ever made too, but I knew that if they happened to turn out for me, they were going to be absolutely delicious. So molasses it was!

* Baking tip: When using sticky or greasy ingredients like molasses, peanut butter, shortening, etc, spray your measuring spoon or cup with Pam cooking spray and your ingredients will just slide right out.

When it came time to put my cookies on the baking sheet, I was sure to lightly spray the sheet first, even though I was pretty sure it would end up with a nice baked-on coat of grossness once it came out of the oven.

About 10 minutes later, and the verdict was in.

Beautiful cookies that held their shape, didn’t have to be scraped off the sheet, and looked absolutely perfect. I couldn’t believe it! Plus, I was able to wash all the baking dishes in no time once I was all done so that I could spend more time with my family. This is thanks to the fact that my molasses wasn’t goo-ed all over the measuring spoons. And completely opposite of what I thought would happen… No gross residue on the baking sheets! They washed up so  easily with no real scrubbing. This was a total game-changing time saver!

This cookies are also a game-changer and a possible contender in this year’s Cookie Bake-Off contest my family holds each year. Check out the recipe, and then scroll down to the end of the post for a chance to win your own full-size sample of PAM and a beautiful Le Creuset Pie Dish!

    Obviously the least favorite kitchen task is washing dishes :p Especially if the dishwasher is broken and the dishes need to be washed by hand.

  2. Ashli says

    I make a similar cookie at Christmas but I love your recipe with the addition of the cinnamon chips! Beautiful cookies! 🙂

  3. says

    These cookies are beautiful, I don’t know what you’re talking about!!!

    I too am not a fan of washing dishes. Living in rentals it hasn’t been easy to score an apartment with a dishwasher in LA!

  4. Anna M. Lavender says

    My least favorite kitchen task is cleaning the oven.. Least favorite baking task is waiting for the cake to cool 🙂

  5. Victoria says

    Personally, I don’t like accumulating all of the dishes from around the kitchen once I’ve had my fun. If I cook with other people, it’s a problem since they aren’t as anal about putting all of the dishes into the sink when they’re done with them. Doing dishes… now I’m just weird I guess because I like doing dishes. Good way to relax mentally while my treats bake in the oven 🙂

  6. Pauline Gudas says

    My least favorite task is cleaning up the mess of pans after an afternoon of baking cookies, breads and coffee cakes for gifts. I am thankful that my husband will usually offer to help

  7. says

    Dishes and grocery shopping with kids are definitely my least favorite. Pam is a very handy helper. I have 2 le crueset pots and one bowl and I love them all! They are expensive, but worth it!!

  8. says

    Your cookie recipe sounds great. I will definitely make these. I am pinning this post. As far as my least favorite task cleaning up after my husband has been cooking in the kitchen.

  9. says

    Washing up is my least favorite thing for sure. And I totally gave up on cooking spray because of the residue. I’d be interested to see how this stuff measures up!

  10. says

    I don’t mind washing dishes, but my least favorite kitchen task is probably scrubbing the stove top/around the burners. And like you I have gotten totally frustrated with my inability to create good-looking cookies, even when they still taste good! 🙂

  11. Amber B says

    Well, obviously it’s the dishes! But sometimes I wish I could take the night off from cooking dinner as well. 🙂

  12. Christine K says

    These cookies were delicious! I can’t tell you how yummy the icing/drizzle was oh my goodness. Stirring and scooping the cookie dough was the hardest part and the smell of it can give you a headache but it was really worth it. Instead of doing a drizzle I took a butter knife and spread the icing on top of the cookies. These are perfect for the holidays!

  13. Ashley says

    As soon as I get all the ingredients, I’m definitely making these! Are these delicious looking cookies stackable? Thank you! 🙂
