Ok, just a quick note, I'm a new mom with a 3 month old at home, so sorry, no pictures of these for now , all i can say is that im pretty sure this is the original starbucks recipe.... Not positive, but tastes like it : ) Found it online somewhere and it looked like the real McCoy so i gave it a try. Anyway, it's fantastic, so try it out. Great for christmas!!
Lisa's Ginger Molasses Cookies
butter 1.5 c
demerara brown sugar 2 c
lg eggs 2
molasses 1/2 c
ap flour 4.5 c
all spice 1 tsp
cloves 1 tsp
ginger 2 tsp
cinnamon 2 tsp
baking soda 2.5 tsp
-cream butter and brown sugar
-add eggs and molasses and cream again
-combine all dry ingredients and dump into your creamed mix. Mix with a large spatula until just combined. It will be quite stiff...
-take a double handful of dough, and roll it into a two inch diameter tube. Roll in white sugar to make it less sticky. Take a sharp knife and cut into rounds that are 1/2-3/4 of an inch thick. Pat on each side with white sugar.
-place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375F for 7 min or until cracked on top. Do not overbake or they will be crisp not moist and chewy!
Note: demerara sugar is the very dark brown sugar in stores. You can get it in the baking section. If you don't have it on hand, just add another tablespoon of molasses to your mix and use the regular brown sugar..
Personal Note: i like to make a pan of them, and then roll the rest of the dough and store it wrapped in seran wrap in the freezer so i can have quick cookies when i feel like it : ) Just an idea. Also, the dough is easier to handle when its not super warm so if you're not working fast, put it in the fridge before you roll it... Enjoy you guys! I know we do : )
