Soft Gingerbread Cookies

Nothing says Christmas like the smell of gingerbread!

Adapted from Taste of Home, makes 16 large cookies


3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar, plus additional for dusting
1 egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 salt


Preheat oven to 350 F.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and molasses, beat until combined. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.

Scoop out 2 tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in extra sugar if desired.  Place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart, press to flatten slightly.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
