I came across this recipe for Fat Archies Molasses Cookies in an old Canadian cookbook I had. The person that originally published this recipe had no idea where the name Fat Archies came from but indicated that it’s the name that appeared at the top of an old handwritten recipe.

These cookies are a soft Molasses cookie and if you are a fan of molasses cookies you need to check out my other Molasses cookies recipes: Rod’s Soft Molasses Cookies and Helen’s Molasses Cookies.


How to Make this Recipe


Preheat oven to 375°F.


In a large mixing bowl, combine brown sugar and vegetable oil and mix well.


Add molasses to brown sugar mixture and mix. Combine milk and baking soda and add to mixing bowl. Mix well.


Add beaten egg and sifted dry ingredients to mixing bowl and mix until all ingredients are well combined.


On a parchment lined cookie sheet, place a dollop of cookie dough on baking sheet leaving enough room in-between as these cookies will expand during the baking process.


Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Let cookies cool on wire rack before serving.
