DIRECTIONS

  • Combine butter, sugar, all 5 spices, and salt in a large mixing bowl, mixing well with a wooden spoon.
  • Dissolve baking soda in the warm water and then stir into the butter mixture.
  • Stir in the molasses and the lightly beaten egg, mixing well.
  • Add flour,1 cup at a time, stirring to mix- the dough will be quite stiff (be sure to scrape all the way down to the bottom of the bowl to mix evenly).
  • Scoop the dough into walnut sized lumps (about 1 Tbsp or so) and drop onto greased or parchment-lined baking sheets, about 2" apart.
  • Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 8-12 minutes, or until crackled and browned. They will look very, very soft in the middles but as long as you can lift them with a spatula they are ready.
  • Let cool 1 minute on pans before carefully lifting with a spatula to cooling racks.
  • Finished cookies should be somewhat chewy.
