Total Time: 30

Yield: 6 dozen

You may want to freeze half the dough.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) softened unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour (all white, or white and wheat for a drier texture)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/3 cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup sugar

Instructions:

In a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer, combine sugar, molasses, butter, and egg. In a separate bowl, whisk together remaining (dry) ingredients. Mix dry ingredients into moist until just combined.


Form four logs, each approximately 8 inches long and 1-1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap in parchment paper, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.


Heat oven to 350°. Remove wrap and slice logs into 1/4-inch-thick rounds. Toss each slice in a bowl of granulated sugar. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake 8 to 12 minutes.

    This is one of my favorite cookie recipes. I’ve made it repeatedly. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Just the right amount of molasses and ginger. I love it.
