  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup white sugar, plus 2 tbsp sugar for coating
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tbsp orange zest
  • 2 tbsp orange juice, fresh squeezed
  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Sift together the first 7 ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer or standing mixer, cream together butter and 1 cup of sugar until light and fluffy (about 1-2 minutes).
  • Add egg to the creamed butter mixture and beat another minute until combined.
  • Add molasses, orange zest, orange juice and combine.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet until they are all incorporated.  Chill dough for one hour.
  • Shape dough into 1-inch balls then roll them in the remaining 2 tbsp of sugar.
  • Place the balls onto parchment lined cookie sheet and slightly flatten using the palm of your hands (make sure cookies are placed about 2 inches away from each other since they will widen when baking).
  • Bake 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool and Serve.
