Up the ante on the classic ginger molasses cookie recipe with 3 variations, too—including cream cheese sandwich cookies!
Molasses ginger cookies are a holiday classic, and are better than any potpourri for making your house smell wonderful.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp salt
Sugar, for rolling
Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars until pale and light. Beat in egg and molasses.
In a smaller bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt. Add to molasses mixture and stir until dough comes together.
Roll dough into 1-inch balls and roll in a shallow dish of sugar to coat. Place an inch or two apart on a parchment-lined sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until
cracked and golden around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool.
Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
