READY IN: 27mins




  • Whisk together the flour, spices, salt and baking soda, and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar, then beat in the molasses.
  • Add the dry ingredients alternately with the rum.
  • Using a cookie or muffin scoop, scoop out round balls of dough somewhere in size between a ping-pong ball and a golf ball, and place the balls on a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Bake the cookies in a preheated 375°F oven for 11 to 12 minutes, until they crack on top but haven't yet browned around the edges.
