Ginger Spice Cookies

This is my mom’s old recipe for ginger cookies and it’s really a good one! The best part is that it’s all made in one pan on the stovetop- super easy and super quick. We added candied ginger this time and loved the addition, so I added it to the ingredient list below. I’ve been eating them with a cup of this turmeric amber sun tea and it’s the perfect afternoon treat. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 sticks salted butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
chopped candied ginger pieces

Directions:
In a medium pot on low heat, melt the butter. Turn off the heat and mix in the sugar, molasses, and egg. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to the saucepan. Refrigerate until the dough is firm. Mix into balls and roll in granulated sugar. Bake for about 12 minutes at 350.

Happy holiday baking!
