1 cup salted butter, melted

1 pkg. instant coffee granules

1 cup sugar

1 egg

½ cup molasses

2 tsp. cinnamon

¾ tsp. salt

1 ½ tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. ground cloves

1 tsp. ground ginger

3 cups flour

Step 2: Preheat Oven

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 3: Wet Ingredients

In stand mixer, whip butter and sugar together until creamy. Add eggs one at a time until incorporated. Then add the Molasses.

Step 4: Dry Ingredients

In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients: cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, ginger, salt, and flour.

Step 5: Combining Wet With Dry, and Rolling in Sugar

Pour dry ingredients into wet ingredients in the stand mixer. Mix until smooth.

Pour some white sugar into a shallow bowl. Form dough into 1 inch balls, and roll in sugar until coated.

Excellent and reliable recipe. I recommend you make the dough, portion cookies with a disher (like an ice cream scoup but smaller) roll them in sugar and freeze the balls. Just bake what you need when you want cookies---works great.


Thank you! That sounds like a good idea.
