baked soft gingerbread cookie


  • 1 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda

  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/4 Teaspoon ground cloves

  • 1/3 Cup brown sugar

  • 1/2 Cup granulated sugar

  • 3/4 Cup butter

  • 1 Whole eggs

  • 1/4 Cup molasses

  • 4 Tablespoon granulated sugar




When ready to cook, set the temperature to 325℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.


Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves in a medium bowl and set aside.


In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and molasses and mix on medium speed until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl.


Add the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix on low speed until combined. Scrape the sides again and mix for 30 seconds longer.


Roll dough into balls one tablespoon at a time and roll in remaining 4 tablespoons of sugar.


Place dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet leaving a couple inches between each cookie.


Place cookie sheet directly on the grill grate and cook for about 10 minutes until they’re lightly browned but still soft in the center.


Remove from the grill and let cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!
