Quick and easy ginger cookies recipe, made with simple ingredients and packed with many spices. Crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside!
In a large mixing bowl, add salted butter, unsalted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and cream until light and fluffy.
Add egg and molasses and mix until smooth
Now, add flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger and mix until you end up with a thick dough.
Note: I found it easier to just mix/knead with my hands rather than a mixer, at this point.
Scoop out small portions of the dough and roll them into walnut –sized balls. Then, roll them in a bowl full of sugar.
Place them on a cookie tray lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. Then, rotate the tray and bake for another 4-5 minutes or until the tops of cookies start to crack and the edges will become slightly brown.
Let these cookies cool down on the cookie tray for about 3 minutes and then place them on a wire rack to cool down. You will end up with A LOT of cookies (about 5 to 6 dozen) but they will be gone in no time. Enjoy!
