Recipe: Ginger Molasses Cookies

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Even though the holiday season is over I still thought I would share a cookie recipe that is perfect for the colder months. The warm and fragrant spices in this recipe are perfect for this time of the year. These cookies are even good to make ice cream sandwiches with. Just place a dollop of softened vanilla ice cream (my recommendation is the Haagen Daz Vanilla) between two cookies and enjoy!

Hope you like the recipe and the video!


3/4 Cup of Butter (room temperature)
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Eggs (room temperature)
1/2 Cup Molasses
2 tsp White Vinegar
3 3/4 Cups of Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Cloves
1/2 Cup Turbinado Sugar

Preheat Oven to 325 degrees.
Whip together the butter, sugar, eggs, molasses, and vinegar. In a separate bowl (I did not do this in the video,but I recommend it) mix the dry ingredients until fully combined. With the mixer on low, gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and mix until just combined (do not over mix).
Roll about a tablespoon of dough into your hands until it is a smooth ball.
Roll the ball into the turbinado sugar and press down so the sugar sticks to the dough.
Place coated cookie balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 11 minutes.
Cool in the pan for a few minutes before moving the cookies to a cooling rack.
