Today is the anniversary of when a molasses tank burst and flooded the north end of boston. They say in the summer you can still smell the molasses in the air.

I had some car trouble today, which is still unresolved, and still stressing me out, so I decided to make cookies, and figured the Pomegranate Molasses I had in the pantry would make a good candidate.

The recipe is from the Serious Eats blog

2.5 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick + 6 tbsp butter
3/4 c sugar
2/3 c pomegranate molasses
1 tsp vanilla (or seeds from 1 vanilla bean)
vanilla sugar to dip cookies in (optional)

combine dry ingredients and set aside
cream butter and sugar
add vanilla and molasses
combine wet and dry in 3 batches, stirring just until combined

make 1inch balls out of dough and roll in vanilla sugar

Bake at 350 for 10 min
