How to make it

  • In large mixing bowl, with mixer cream softened butter, brown and white sugars, molasses, vanilla
  • When mixed well, add egg, beat until smooth
  • In medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, salt, cloves
  • Set mixer at lowest speed
  • Add whisked dry ingredients
  • Mix well
  • I use a level cookie scoop, or generous tablespoons and scoop dough onto a cookie sheet (I use cookie sheet with air for these)
  • I mound 3 rows of 3, without crowding
  • You can use parchment paper (I have, but don't always use it) It is just quicker if you are in a big hurry
  • Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes
  • Cookies will first plump up as they spread, but then will deflate and become flat, and once this happens, they are done
  • NOTE: I sometimes open the oven door, once they plump up, and gently tap them with the bottom of a fork. Then close oven door, and continue cooking. These cookies look crackled like a map when done. I gently remove them from cookie sheet with metal spatula and place them on wire rack to cool.

    These are really good! I originally made them to grind up for a gingersnap crust for pumpkin cheesecake, but ended up eating most of them! Really chewy and spicy. D-Licious. (the crust turned out good,too)
