Ginger cookies that scream the holidays

by Michael on December 3, 2012

So these are my favorite cookies this time of year.  And if you know my eating habits, that is saying a lot.  They scream Christmas to me.  I choose to under cook them a little so they are very soft in the middle. Try them and tell me what you think.

Wine Pairing: Laurie said these cookies rock with a sweet Gewürztraminer or late harvest Riesling!

Ginger Cookies

  • ¾ Cup Butter at room temp
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 each egg
  • ¼ cup Molasses
  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1½ teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
These are very easy.  Pre heat oven to 350° and mix all of the ingredients together in a Kitchen Aid with the paddle attachment on a very low speed until just combined.  Do not over mix this dough.  Scoop out dough into the size of ping-pong balls. Flatten the balls and toss in sugar.  Put on a cookie sheet spaced well and bake for about 9 to 9 and 1/2 minutes.

What does “1 each egg” mean?

It is just my format for recipes. I always put an amount. 1 each just means 1.
