Ginger Cookies

by foodlikecake

Happy friday, guys! I made you some ginger cookies. These ginger cookies are soft and full of flavor, they’re also rolled in sugar so the outside has some crunch.


Ingredients: Cookies (from here)  *Makes 16

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg, room temperature

1/4 cup molasses

2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/2 teaspoon salt

Additional sugar

Recipe: Cookies

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Beat in the egg and the molasses.

In a separate small bowl, whisk together the flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Gradually add to the wet mixture and mix well.

Form 1 and 1/2 tablespoon sized balls and roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on baking sheets.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
