‘Tis the season for whipping up a batch of cookies every day! As soon as the holidays roll around, I’m pretty much glued to the oven, making batch after batch of Christmas cookies. And boy, oh boy, do we have a good one for you this year. You’ve probably had a soft molasses cookie. But have you ever had one stuffed with a toasty, gooey marshmallow in the middle? I mean…why would you ever eat normal molasses cookies when you could go all out with these easy marshmallow molasses cookies?

What are marshmallow molasses cookies?

Marshmallow stuffed cookies are one of my favorite things. Remember those epic s’mores cookies we made last year for the holidays? Well this year we decided to make a classic christmas cookie: a zingy spiced molasses cookie and stuff it with that same ooey gooey marshmallow center. The result is a festive and fun holiday cookie with an irresistible marshmallow center. They’re going to be a hit in your Christmas cookie boxes.

How to keep your marshmallow stuffed molasses cookies super soft

Follow these tips and even a week later you’ll still be munching on these chewy molasses cookies. These cookies keep super well so they’re perfect for sending to friends or family in a cookie tin for the holidays.

  • Under bake them: The key to soft cookies is keeping them a little gooey in the middle. Cookies will continue to cook as they cool down so if you take them out of the oven when they’re fully baked, they’ll actually cool to overbaked. An overbaked cookie might taste fine hot out of the oven, but a week later it’s hard as a rock. Take the cookies out when they are still gooey in the middle for best results!
  • Freeze them until you’re ready to eat/mail them: Freezing your cookies will seal in all that freshness of a fresh baked cookie until you’re ready to chow down.
  • Store them in a tightly sealed ziploc bag: Storing your cookies in an airtight bag or container will keep them fresher longer!

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Countryside Creamery Unsalted Butter, softened
  • ¾ cup Simply Nature Organic Light Brown Sugar
  • ⅓ cup Baker’s Corner Original Molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ⅓ cups Baker’s Corner All Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 teaspoons Stomemill Ground Cinnamon, separated
  • 2 teaspoons Stonemill Ground Ginger
  • ½ teaspoon Stonemill Ground Cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup Simply Nature Organic Cane Sugar
  • 16 Baker’s Corner Marshmallows

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add the molasses and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  4. Add the egg. Beat well.
  5. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt.
  6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat until combined and no streaks of flour remain.
  7. In a small bowl combine the cane sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons of Stonemill Ground Cinnamon to make cinnamon sugar. Set aside.
  8. Use a medium size cookie scoop to scoop out a cookie. The dough will be soft and slightly sticky. Flatten out the dough in your palm and place a marshmallow in the center. Fold the dough up around the edges to form it into a ball.
  9. Roll the cookies in cinnamon sugar and place two inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  10. Bake for 11 minutes, or until the cookies have puffed up and crinkled and are set on the edges but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool completely before using a spatula to transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy!

    • I’ve never tried that! The molasses gives a very treacly spiced flavor and texture to the cookies so I think they would be a bit different with maple syrup, but would probably still work!

  1. These cookies were so yummy! I think they might be my favorite cookies ever! They are soft and chewy with lots of flavor. Thank you for posting this delicious recipe!

  2. Hi there, I saw these on your Instagram page and a few people mentioned the marshmallows fully melted when they tried the recipe. I wanted to make this soon and just read through the recipe. Does the recipe use regular-sized marshmallows? Can you clarify the step when the cookies are shaped? The dough is supposed to be shaped like a ball to cover the lower edge of the marshmallow in the center? Thanks and can’t wait to make ’em.

    • Yes it does use regular sized marshmallow! THe marshmallow should be completely encases in the dough with just just a bit of it peeking out of the top If you are worried about your marshmallows disintegrating you can also freeze the marshmallow before wrapping them in the dough!

  3. Thank you for the recipe 😋 I used white chocolate buttons as I didn’t have marshmallows 🤤 Christmas 🎄 is coming
