Pile of cookies to be consumed immediately.

Made these cookies with my mother while at home in NJ earlier this month, then made them again for Rafe as soon as I got home to TX (very same evening!). That’s how good these were. I will be making these again for sure.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened (just stick in microwave for a few seconds on each side)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 c. molasses

Method

  • Preheat to 350. Whisk together flours, baking soda, and spices in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, place 1/2 cup sugar aside (you’ll use this to roll balls in later).
  • With an electric beater, beat butter and remaining cup of sugar until combined. Beat in egg and molasses. Gradually mix in dry ingredients, until just combined (don’t overmix).
  • Roll into balls of about an inch diameter, roll balls in the sugar you set aside earlier. Place balls on baking sheets, a few inches apart. Bake about 10-15 min.
