5. Soft + Chewy Molasses Cookies

Molasses cookies have got to be one of the most underrated cookies out there. Jessie of Faring Well likes to make hers with coconut oil and maple syrup and then “dunk them in some melted dark chocolate and crushed pistachio dust,” for a fancy twist. Be like Jessie.
