Molasses Crinkles

Molasses Crinkles

From The Baker Chick

Makes about 2 dozen

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground cloves

2/3 cup vegetable or canola oil

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup molasses

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ cup granulated sugar, for rolling

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves until well combined; set aside.

3. In a large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil and sugars until well combined. Add egg, molasses, and vanilla extract, and whisk until smooth. Sprinkle flour mixture over sugar mixture, ½ cup at a time, and fold together using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula until incorporated.

4. Place ¼ cup granulated sugar in a small bowl. Using a 1-inch cookie scoop or a heaping tablespoon, roll dough into balls. Toss in sugar to coat completely and place on prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart.

5. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until edges are set and tops are cracked, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
