Soft Molasses Cookies

Description:

These are the best molasses cookies ever!


Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 1/4 cups flour

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment mix the butter and 1 cup of the sugar together on medium speed for 2 minutes, place the additional sugar in a small bowl for later.
  3. Add in the egg, molasses, vanilla, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger and mix for an additional minute, until combined and smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  4. Turn the mixer to low and add in the flour, mixing until just combined.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop (2 tablespoon) portion out the dough and roll into balls. Roll the dough ball into the reserved sugar and place on the prepared baking sheet 2- inches apart.
  6. Bake for 9-10 minutes, until the edges are set.
  7. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes:

store airtight for up to 3 days for best freshness.

These cookies will freeze nicely, airtight for up to a month. You can also freeze the dough prior to baking.
