How to Make Lizzy's Ginger Molasses Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices.
  2. in the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and add the oil, molasses, egg, and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Beat in the flour mixture mixture until well incorporated. Cover and chill the batter until firm (about 2 hours or overnight).
  3. Pre-Heat oven to 375*
  4. Place about 1 cup of sugar in a medium sized bowl. .

    When the dough has chilled, roll into 1 inch balls. Then roll the balls of dough into the sugar, coating them thoroughly. Place on the baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart .
  5. Bake for about 9 - 10 minutes, (my oven was 7 mins) or until the tops of the cookies have crinkles yet are barely dry. (They will look a little underdone.)

    Remove from oven and cool on a wire racks.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to a week. These freeze well!! I'd only keep them in the freezer no longer than 6 months. Merry Christmas and Enjoy!!!
