Spice Cookies with Vanilla Powder

Spice Cookies with Vanilla Powder

These spice cookies covered with sweet vanilla powder are a new twist to an old-time favorite cookie. Everyone will love these spiced molasses cookies. As a kid, I always liked the cookies covered in powdery white icing sugar.  The vanilla powder takes the flavor up a notch!

One of Watkins’ newest items is vanilla power and I was super excited to try it. So far I’ve sprinkled it on fresh berries, it’s so good with strawberries! I’ve also sprinkled it on french toast and used it to make frosting for a mug cake. I knew it would be perfect for coating cookies. Since my husband loves spice cookies here are the results. I’d love to hear how you like this recipe. You should know that I’m an Independent Watkins Consultant and if you order through my website I’ll earn a commission.  I only use Watkins spices, extracts, and seasonings in my kitchen because I love the quality and flavour.  I think you’ll love Watkins for your cooking and baking too.

Directions for Spice Cookies with Vanilla Powder:

  1. Cream together the butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs and molasses and beat until light and fluffy.
