These sweet + spicy ginger molasses cookies are an absolute must for these colder months! The delicious smell that fills your home while they bake, is itself, reason enough to bake these cookies. 🙂 Perfect with a hot cup of coffee or tea!

Ingredients:

½ c. butter or solid coconut oil, softened

¾ c. brown sugar

¼ c. molasses

1 egg

1 ½ c. all-purpose flour (can replace with gluten-free or almond flour)

1 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp cloves

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp nutmeg

1 tsp baking soda

Extra sugar for rolling, if desired

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and line a large cookie sheet with parchment.

In a large bowl, cream together your butter and sugar until creamy and smooth. Add in your molasses and egg and beat until thoroughly combined.

Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices and add to your wet mixture. Stir until combined and smooth, then chill the dough for at least 30 minutes or overnight.

When ready to bake, roll dough into 1 tbsp balls and roll in extra sugar if desired. Bake for 12 mins or until lightly browned. Let cool completely and enjoy!
