It’s almost Christmas, which means COOKIES! I usually make an assortment of Christmas cookies each year, sugar, Rolo, cherry cookies, pink sugar cookies, snickerdoodles…but my FAVORITE one to make are these chewy gingerbread cookies. They are delish. Here’s how I make them!
What you need:
- 3/4 cup softened butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 1/4 cup flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp ginger
- 3/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp cloves
- 1/4 tsp salt
Preheat your oven to 350.
Cream together your softened butter and sugar.
Add your egg and molasses and mix.
In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients.
Mix together, and then add to your wet mixture.
Roll into balls and coat in sugar.
Bake for 10 minutes. Don’t overcook, you want them to be soft and chewy!
Enjoy and a have a Merry Christmas!
