I know it’s so close to spring, but its never too late for some ginger molasses cookies! This recipe I got from a friends mom who swears by these! They were amazing! Soft, chewy and had a nice bite from the ginger.
- 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 3/4 cup softened butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 tbsp sugar
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
In a stand mixer, using the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar for 2-3 minutes until it’s pale and fluffy. Add the egg and molasses and beat well for another couple minutes.
Mix together all the dry ingredients and sift (all purpose flour, ground ginger, baking soda, ground cinnamon and salt). Stir the dry ingredients into the wet with a soft spatula.
Form the dough into balls, I weighed mine to be 40 grams each so they would be perfectly round and even. Coat each ball in the remaining 2 tbsp of sugar.
Bake for 12 minutes (DO NOT OVER BAKE) it’s better if these cookies are underdone than overdone to ensure that they stay nice and chewy! Cool and then dig in!
