KickYourAss Gingerbread Cookies

Short and sweet today. I have found THE very best Gingerbread Cookie recipe. EVER. This was probably handed down, mother to daughter for centuries, who originally got it from the gingerbread inventor themselves. They are THAT good.

Trust me on this all my proper gingerbread challenged friends –  Make this.

You can shower me with your thank you’s later.

KickYourAss Gingerbread Cookies

1 cup        Butter, softened
1 cup        Brown sugar
1 cup        White Sugar
1/2 cup     Molasses
1               Egg
3 cups      All Purpose Flour
2 tsp        Baking soda
1 tsp        Cinnamon
2 TBS      Powdered Ginger
1/2 tsp     Allspice
1 tsp        Vanilla

Preheat oven to 375.
Cream together sugars, butter, molasses, egg, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, spices and soda
Add dry to wet ingredients, and combine thoroughly.
Scoop onto baking sheet in nice sized rounds

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes, depending on your baking sheets. Just keep an eye on them. They will be thick and soft when you taken them out, but on cooling, will flatten, firm up and become crunchy on the outside.

These cookies are so good. Sweet, crunchy on the outside but chewy on the inside. The two tablespoons of ginger is AMAZING in them, makes them nice and spicy with gingery goodness!
