Old Fashioned Spicy Chewy Ginger CookiesSaturday, December 22, 2012
Recipe adopted from Burp! Where Food Happens.
3/4 cup cold unsalted butter, chopped into small pieces
7 ounces (~1 cup) brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
11 7/8 ounces (~2 1/2) cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
4 3/4 ounces (~2/3 cup) sugar (for dusting)
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Using an electric mixer, combine the cold butter, brown sugar, egg, and molasses until combined. In a separate bowl, pass the flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger through a sifter into a large bowl. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix until combined.
Roll the dough into roughly 1 tablespoon balls and then roll the balls into the sugar until fully coated. Place the cookies onto lined cookie sheets, press down on each cookie slightly, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Let the cookies cool for several minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
