Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies


These are by far the BEST ginger cookies. Ever. Better than Starbucks in my opinon! I added finely chopped pieces of candied ginger and I also added some chopped Black and Green's organic ginger dark chocolate bar. 


2 1/4 cup flour
1.5 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup salted (yes, salted) butter
1 cup golden brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1/2 cup chopped candied ginger (optional)
1/2 cup chopped dark ginger chocolate (optional)
granulated sugar for rolling



Preheat oven to 350 F. Sift dry ingredients together, stir, and set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy (I used a hand mixer) and then mix in egg and molasses. Add dry ingredients to wet, and mix well. Stir in candied ginger and chocolate. Form into 1.5 inch balls then roll in granulated sugar. Place on a cookie sheet 2" apart, then pop into the oven on the middle rack for 7 to 8 minutes. Don't overbake - they are meant to be super chewy. Let cool slightly before removing to a cooling rack. Enjoy!

  3. I'm referring to the ones that I made prior, I mean. Not the Starbucks ones. Although, I do love these better than Starbucks.
