While we offer our made-from-scratch Molasses Crinkles year-round, we think they're particularly special this time of year. With a crispier edge and soft middle, these little spicy treats will warm you from the inside out. The recipe is easy to make and pairs so nicely with our Pumpkin Spice lattes, which are on special for Co-op owners for a week! Think about adding these to your cookie exchange this year- your friends will be clamoring for the recipe!
To make these cookies you will need: 1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter 1/4 cup molasses 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 egg 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon ginger 1 teaspoon allspice
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. With either a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter, molasses, sugar and baking soda until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg to mixture and cream for another 2-3 minutes. In a medium bowl whisk together the dry ingredient. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix on low for 1-2 minutes, until the dry ingredients are well incorporated. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet and scoop spoonfuls of batter a couple inches apart. We recommend using a small ice cream scoop for uniform cookies. Sprinkle sugar on top of dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the middles are set. Makes about 20-24 small cookies.
