Soft Baked Gingerbread Cookies

12 days of Christmas treats are here! I’m really excited to do this and hopefully I can keep up during this crazy holiday season! These cookies were delicious. This recipe is from Dessert Now Dinner Later.

1/2 unsalted better (room temperature)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup molasses
1 3/4 flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup sugar for rolling

Cream together the butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Mix in the egg, vanilla extract and molasses until.  In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.  Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix.  Chill the dough for at least 2 hours. Once the dough is chilled roll into 1 1/2 inch balls, roll in sugar then place on a lined baking pan. Slightly press down on each cookie before baking. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Remove and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes on the baking sheet then remove to a wire rack to continue cooling.
