Ginger Molasses Cookies
Nothing is more satisfying than the sweet flavor of warm spiced ginger molasses cookies with a soft chewy texture and slightly crisp sugar dusting.
Servings 24 cookies
- 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- 1/4 cup molasses
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt until combined; set aside.
In a large mixing bowl using a handheld electric mixer, cream together butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Mix in water and molasses. Gradually mix in the flour mixture.
Add the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar to a small bowl.
Using a medium cookie scoop, portion the dough then roll into a ball. Roll dough balls in the sugar. Place cookies on ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten the cookies with a glass dipped in sugar or a rubber spatula.
Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
