DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°; lightly grease (or line w/ parchment paper) 2 baking sheets.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, spices, salt, and baking soda.
  • In a saucepan set over low heat, or in the microwave, melt together the butter, sugar, molasses, and rum.
  • Stir the molasses mixture into the flour mixture; the dough will be wet and sticky.
  • Cover and refrigerate the dough, for 30 minutes or longer; it will become quite firm.
  • Using an overstuffed tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop out 2-inch balls of dough.
  • Place the balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between them.
  • Flatten them slightly.
  • Bake the cookies for 11 minutes, until they appear set (but not dark brown) around the edges.
  • Remove them from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool.
  • Store in airtight container as soon as they are just barely warm.
