Cookie Recipe #3

Today's cookies was a Molasses Spice cookie- they are awesome- not to "spicy" not to sweet and awesome with hot apple cider.

Day 3
Molasses Spice Cookies
2 dozen cookies
Americas Test Kitchen

1/3 cup granulated sugar, plus ½ cup for rolling
2 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 ½ tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground cloves
¼ tsp. ground allspice
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. salt
12 Tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
½ cup molasses

1.    Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
2.    Spread ½ cup sugar in shallow dish. In medium bowl, whisk flour, cinnamon, ginger, baking soda, cloves, allspice, pepper and salt together. Using stand mixer beat butter, brown sugar, and remaining 1/3 cup granulated sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 – 6 minutes. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until combined. Beat in molasses until incorporated, scraping down bowl as needed. Reduce speed to low and slowly add flour mixture until combined.
3.    Working with 2 Tbsp. of dough at a time, roll into balls with wet hands, then roll in sugar to coat. Space balls 2 inches apart on prepared sheets.
4.    Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until edges are set and beginning to brown but centers are still soft and puffy, 10 to 12 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through
baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 10 minutes.
