Serves: 20 cookies
  • 2¼ all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil ( I've also used coconut oil here)
  • ⅓ cup unsulfured molasses
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 11/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sofa, spices, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer beat brown sugar, oil, and molasses on medium speed for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and beat one minute. Scrape down the bowl and beat another minute.
  5. On low, add the dry ingredients to the wet just until combined. Add in ginger and mix to combine.
  6. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoons, scoop out cookies onto lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake 13 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on the baking sheet before placing ginger cookies on a cooling rack.
