Soft Ginger Cookies

Hi there!

One of my favorite things is when I bake and the entire house starts to smell sweet and warm. It’s like lighting a candle but on a much larger scale. Well, these ginger cookies definitely give off that amazing Fall scent when they hit the oven. They are soft in the middle but have a small sweet crunch around the edges. I highly recommend that you make these cookies this Fall season!


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 cups unsalted softened butter
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • sugar for rolling (about 1/2 cup)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger.
  4. In the bowl of a standard mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars for 2 minutes.
  5. Add in the egg and molasses and beat until well combined.
  6. Add in the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix slowly just until combined and a dough has formed.
  7. Scoop 2 tablespoon amounts of dough, roll into a ball, roll into the sugar, and place onto the baking sheets.
  8. Bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes or until you can see the edges starting to brown.
  9. Cool completely before serving!

I hope that you will enjoy and love this recipe as much as I do. It is definitely one that you should keep all season long, as these cookies are great for gift giving, a sweet snack, or even a fun seasonal dessert.

Happy Baking!
