Chewy, soft, moist, and spicy. The perfect balance for a Molasses Cookie and the holidays!
- ¾ cups Unsalted Butter, melted
- 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
- 1 whole Egg, At Room Temperature
- ¼ cups Molasses
- 2 cups All-purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- ½ teaspoons Salt
- 2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon Ground Cloves
- 1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
- 1 cup Granulated Sugar (to Roll Dough In)
In a medium bowl, mix together the melted butter, light brown sugar, and egg until smooth. Stir in the molasses. In another bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. Mix dry ingredients into the molasses mixture. Cover and chill dough for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and roll them in the granulated sugar. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Using the bottom of a flat glass, gently press down on the cookies to lightly flatten.
Bake for 7-8 minutes until tops are cracked. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks.
