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
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.
