Alyssa's Spice Cookies
Makes 18 cookies
125 g (1/2 cup) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup molasses
200 g (1 cup) white sugar
270 g (2 1/4 cups) flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt (if using salted butter)
2 tsp baking soda
And we're off:
Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silpat. In a large mixing bowl, or in stand mixer beat the butter, molasses, egg and sugar with paddle attachment on medium speed for a few minutes, until the mixture is very well combined and starts to look a little fluffy.
In a medium bowl sift together flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt and baking soda. Stir together with a whisk.
With the mixer on low speed slowly add the flour mixture into the wet batter and mix until completely incorporated.
Using a medium sized scoop, scoop out cookies into baking sheet keeping at least 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cooked through, no wet bits remain. Wait three minutes before transferring cookies to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
