A Different Kind of Molasses Cookie

Pomegranate Molasses Cookies
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
14 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 cup butter
1/2 cup pomegranate molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pistachios

Preheat oven to 375
In a mixing bowl, combine four, baking soda and salt. Set aside
In the mixing bowl of your mixer, cream butter, sugar, pomegranate molasses and vanilla. 
In three batches, add flour (I just dumped it in)  Mix till just combined.
Fold in pistachios. 

Use the medium scoop, the one that was on the smallish side, drop onto parchment lined baking sheets. 
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. 
Cool for a few minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. 
Makes 4 dozen cookies. 

Pomegranate molasses is a mid east item and can be found at places that stock that type of food. I found my molasses at Borracchini's bakery in Seattle.  Not only are the cannoli incredible, they stock specialty Italian foods, home made pastas and gelato! They have now started to stock mid east specialties too.
