HOLY MOLY these cookies were a big winner. I hate to admit it but I am normally not a HUGE fan of cookies that don’t involve chocolate, so I was a little bit skeptical. This recipe came from Gimme Some Oven and they are absolutely perfect for the holidays. They made my apartment smell divine and were pretty simple, definitely take the time to make these goodies!
I actually halved the recipe entirely because I didn’t have the need for a TON of cookies so keep that in mind if you are going to try this! The original recipe is below and will bake around 40 cookies!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
1 1/2 cups of unsalted butter - softened to room temp
1 cup of white granulated sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of molasses
4 1/2 cups of AP flour
4 tsp baking soda
1 tablespoon of ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp salt
WHAT TO DO
Mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and salt.
Cream together the softened butter and sugars until light & fluffy. Mix in the eggs and molasses. Gradually add in dry ingredients.
Transfer dough to a airtight container and store in the fridge for two hours (DONT SKIP THIS STEP BE PATIENT!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
Roll the dough into small balls and roll each ball into white sugar until covered.
Bake for 8-10 minutes until the cookies crack slightly on top. 9 minutes was perfect for me! Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy!
ENJOY! XO KRISTEN
