  • Using parchment paper, line baking sheets and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Butter and sugar should be creamed together until frothy. It is my preference to use a stand mixer for this task; however, electric beaters or a wooden spoon will also do the trick.
  • Blend the egg and molasses together after adding them. Whisk or sift the dry ingredients together, and then add them to the liquid ingredients. The mixture should be thoroughly combined.
  • The size of a small walnut can be used to form or scoop out balls. For uniform cookies, I like to use a cookie scoop that is 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Use granulated sugar to coat each ball by rolling it in it.
  • Place two inches apart on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or is not greased.
  • Cook for ten to twelve minutes, then remove from the oven and allow to cool somewhat on the pan before moving to a rack to finish cooling there.


  • It is not necessary to refrigerate this dough before baking it, but you are free to create it ahead of time if you so like.
  • I recommend scooping the dough out onto a baking sheet and then freezing it until the dough balls are frozen. This will allow you to freeze the dough.
  • After that, place the dough in a freezer bag that has a zip lock. Before you roll out the dough balls and bake them, let them thaw.
  • The cookies that have been cooked can also be frozen. Layers should be separated using waxed paper.
  • You can create flat cookies using this recipe; but, if you want them to be puffier, add two and a quarter cups of flour.
