A Starbucks copy-cat recipe
- 2 1⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 3⁄4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 extra large egg
- 1⁄4 cup regular unsulphured molasses
- granulated sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees with the rack in the center.
- Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Set aside.
- Sift flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger into a medium bowl.
- Set aside.
- Cream the butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl with mixer on high speed until light and fluffy, about 1 minute.
- With mixer on medium speed, beat in the egg and molasses, then increase the speed to high and beat about 1 minute longer, until the mixture no longer looks curdled.
- Scrape the sides with a rubber spatula several times while mixing.
- Mix in the flour mixture on low speed.
- The batter will be rather stiff.
- Place some granulated sugar on a small plate or saucer.
- Use a 1/4-cup ice cream scoop or a measuring cup to form 1/4-cup portions of dough.
- (Spray the cup or scoop with non-stick vegetable spray to make it easier to release the dough.) Transfer the dough to your hands and roll each portion into a rough ball, then roll each ball into the sugar.
- Place six sugared balls on each baking sheet, spacing them evenly, because they will spread during baking.
- Dampen your fingers with water and press down lightly on each cookie to flatten it a little and dampen the top.
- Refrigerate one filled baking sheet while the other bakes.
- Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies have spread and are firm to the touch.
- Rotate the sheet 180 degrees halfway through the baking time.
- Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet.
- Note: This dough can be frozen for slice-and-.
- bake cookies.
- Just roll into a log 2 1/2 inches thick.
- Wrap in plastic wrap and then in foil.
- Can be stored in the freezer up to 6 months.
YUMMY! I just made these and they are good! I used two teaspoons of "victorian epicure" gingerbread spice instead and baked them for a few minutes less, they are Pefect!
Mmmm. I just baked these cookies and they are very tasty. There is the right amount of spices for my taste. I used wheat flour and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top. Thanks for sharing!
I've made these a few times. They are so yummy!
