Ginger Molasses Cookies
This Soft and Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookie recipe is perfectly spiced with notes of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg then rolled in sugar and baked! This truly is the BEST ginger cookie!
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp ground cloves
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar, for rolling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Add butter and both sugars to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Cream until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.
Add in egg, vanilla and molasses and mix to combine.
Combine flour, ginger, cloves, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in two parts. Do not over mix the batter.
Pour 1/4 cup of granulated sugar into a small bowl.
Portion out 1 tablespoon sized cookies and roll each cookie in granulated sugar.
Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until set. (I like to slightly under bake these for extra soft and chewy cookies!)
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
