Serves:

2 dozen cookies

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

1/2 c
butter, melted and cooled
1/2 c
sugar
1/3 c
molasses
3 Tbsp
bourbon
1 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
ground ginger
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 c
chopped almonds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 300F. Line baking sheet with baking parchment.
2
In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, sugar, molasses, and bourbon until smooth and well blended, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.
3
In another bowl, mix flour, ground ginger, and salt. Stir into butter mixture until well blended. Stir in almonds.
4
Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, 3 inches apart, onto prepared baking sheets.
5
Bake cookies until slightly darker brown, 22 to 28 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.
6
With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool. If hot cookies start to break, slide a thin spatula under them to release; let stand on pan to firm up, 2 to 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
