    Debbie R.'s Note:

    From the America's Test Kitchen cookbook, same folks as cooks illustrated. They point out that if you dip your hands in water when rolling the dough into balls, it helps keep it from sticking to your hands. Also helps the sugar stick to the dough. Time does not include time to cool.

    Dark Rum Glaze

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust an oven rack to the middle position. Heat oven to 375. Spread 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow dish for coating. Set aside. Whisk the flour, baking soda, spices, pepper and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Beat butter, brown sugar and remaining 1/3 cup sugar together in a large bowl using an elecctric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 3-6 inutes. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla until combined, about 30 seconds. Beat in the molasses until incorporated, about 30 seconds, scraping down the side of the bowl and bveater as needed.
    3. 3
      Reduce mixer speed to low. Slowly mix in the flour mixture until combined, about 30 seconds. (Dough will be soft.) Give the dough a final stir with a rubhger spatula to make sure it is combinewd.
    4. 4
      Using wet hands, roll 2 T. dough at a time into balls, then roll in the sugar to coat. Lay on two parchment-lined baking sheets, spaced about 2 inches apart. Bake, one sheet at a tim, until edges set and tops are cracked but centers are still soft and underdone. (Peek thru cracks to check centers.) It's about 10-12 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet halfway thru baking.
    5. 5
      Let cookies cool on sheet for 10 minutes. You can serve them at this point or transfer to a wire rack, cooling completely before putting on the rum glaze.
    6. 6
      To make glaze, just mix the confectioners sugar and rum together until smooth. Drizzle it over the cooled cookies. Let set for 10-15 minutes before serving.
    7. 7
      NOTE: if you want to make these w/o the rum glaze, you could also use a variation that has orange essence in it. Just add 1 t. grated orange zest to the dough when you add the molasses. Process 2/3 cup sugar with 2 t. grated orange zest in a food processor until fragrance, about 10 seconds. Use that for rolling instead of the plain white sugar.

      We found these in *American Classics* by the editors of Cook's Illustrated magazine, a publication that I'm now thoroughly psychically married to since EVERYTHING I've ever made from their books/magazines turns out perfect... and beyond. I've spent my life proudly boasting that I never fall victim to sweet stuff, just not my thing, but I could NOT stop eating these until I finally had to ask my husband take the container from my hands. We've since made three batches and learned during the second that refrigerating the dough in log form, slicing the chilled dough into disks, rolling into balls, through the sugar, etc., makes 11 minutes in the oven the PERFECT temperature that results in soft, chewy delicious, sinful heaven. I should mention that we don't make/use a glaze; they really are perfect as is for us. Not too sweet, but full of flavor and crazy-addictive! Thank you so much, Debbie, for posting this so I don't have to pull out that big honkin' book every time I want to make them (since my lousy memory won't retain squat.) :o)

      Definitely a keeper. It turned out just as well as I thought it would! They were so good, I really like all the spices and the molasses its a great combination. For the icing instead of the rum I added the zest of one orange and the juice of half an orange mixed with 1 cup confectioner's sugar. The orange really goes well with the other flavors in the cookie. The only other thing I did differently was I accidentally added the whole egg instead of just the yolk. I wish I hadn't because I have a feeling that would have made it even more chewy. They were very good and I will be making them again. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5 Team: Las Misticos Majicos Sirinas.
