How to make it

  • Cream the butter, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar and molasses in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs until smooth.
  • Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, red pepper, cloves and salt in a medium bowl. Beat dry ingredients into the butter-molasses mixture until smooth.
  • Divide dough into six portions. Roll each portion into 1-inch-wide cylinders. Wrap in plastic and chill 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 300 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment.
  • Pour remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar in a shallow dish. Cut each cylinder into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Dip both sides of cookies in the sugar. Place on prepared baking sheets. Bake until firm, about 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks.

    I absolutely LOVE ginger-molasses cookies! The red pepper looks like it puts the "SNAP" in Gingersnap.
