Ginger Molasses Cookies Recipe
Learn how to make this delicious, old-fashioned ginger molasses cookies recipe! These are so soft and tasty - you've never had a cookie like this before.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes
Servings 48 cookies
- 1 1/2 cups butter (softened to room temperature, not melted)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 2 egg(s)
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Using a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and molasses, and beat on medium-low speed until combined.
While wet batter is mixing, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt in a medium-sized bowl.
Slowly add in the dry ingredient mixture, tablespoon-by-tablespoon, and beat until combined.
Cover and refrigerate cookie dough for at one hour or until thoroughly chilled.
Roll the dough into balls around 1 - 1.5 inches in diameter. Fill a bowl with sugar, and roll each ball in the sugar until it is completely coated.
Place on cookie sheet at least 1.5 inches apart, then bake for about 10-12 minutes, until the cookies begin to slightly crack on top. Cookies will firm up as they cool, so don’t worry if they appear undercooked.
Remove from the oven and let cool for five minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
