Stovetop, Oven, Rolling pin, Parchment paper, Knife


Butter (unsalted)
Brown sugar (light)
Cinnamon (ground)
Allspice (ground)
Ginger (ground)

Step 1

Melt butter in the microwave or stovetop. Place the melted butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice & a small pinch of salt.


Step 2

Let the mixture cool slightly, then whisk in the egg.

Flour (all-purpose)
Baking powder
Baking soda

Step 3

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder & baking soda.

Step 4

Add the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet. Use a spatula to combine. The mixture will look wet, but it will firm up! Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove dough from the refrigerator and flour a clean work surface. Place half of the dough onto the work surface and roll to 1/4 inch thick. If the dough sticks to the surface you can add more flour.

Step 6

Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut dough into shapes and transfer them to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 7

Bake the cookies for 8 to 12 minutes until slightly browned around the edges. Let the cookies cool the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer them to a wired rack to cool completely. Repeat these steps with the other half of the dough.
