Ginger-Spice Cookies

I really like this ginger-bread style cookie recipe. It has a nice, but not overwhelming, spice taste to it.

Ginger-Spice Cookies


In large bowl, sift together:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 ground ginger
  • 1/4 grounds cloves
  • 1/4 ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

In another bowl, mix together:

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup warm molasses
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


1. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well until combined and dough is formed.

2. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

3. When you are ready to bake, take the dough out of refrigerator and let rest for 15-30 minutes to make it easier to roll out.

4. Roll out to desired thickness and then cut into shapes using your favorite cookie cutters.

5. Decorate as you desire.

6. Bake in a preheated 350° oven for about six minutes.  Let cool for two minutes, and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
