Molasses Crinkle Cookies

Molasses crinkle cookies are soft and chewy molasses cookies filled with cozy, warming spices. They’re rolled in spiced sugar and powdered sugar to give them that signature crinkle top.

In a small bowl, melt the butter and cool in the fridge for about 15 minutes.

Step 1:  

In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, ground spices and salt together until well combined. Set aside.

Step 2:  

In another bowl, whisk the melted and cooled butter with the light brown sugar until smooth and well combined. Whisk in the egg, vanilla extract and molasses until creamy and well combined.

Step 3:  

With a flexible spatula or spoon, mix in the dry ingredients until just combined. Cover the dough with plastic wrap. Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Step 4:  

Preheat the oven to 350 F (177 C) for 30 minutes. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Pour powdered sugar in a small shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, mix granulated sugar and ground cinnamon or ginger until well combined.

Step 5:  

Using a small, tablespoon sized  cookie scoop, scoop tablespoon sized balls of molasses cookie dough. Roll the ball into the spiced sugar first and powdered sugar second until well coated.

Step 6:  

Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until the edges are set. Remove the cookie sheet to cool on a cooling rack for 5 minutes.
