Molasses Crinkle Cookies

Adapted from My Kitchen Addiction

Yield - 3 1/2 dozen cookies

1 1/2 sticks (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup molasses

2 1/4 cup flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/2 cup raw turbinado sugar

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well incorporated.  Scrape the bowl and beat in the molasses.
  3. Sift together the flour, soda, cinnamon, ginger, salt, cloves, and allspice.
  4. Add to the dough in the mixer and mix on low until just combined.
  5. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 ˚F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Use a 2-tablespoon scoop to portion the dough.  Roll each ball of dough into the turbinado sugar and place on the cookie sheet about 2-inches apart. These cookies do spread.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just set.  Remove and let cool on a wire rack.
