Simply A (RD) Fact: Cinnamon helps give these cookies their delicious flavor - did you know that cinnamon is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols?
  • 2 sticks of butter, softened – you can substitute out one stick for margarine if you prefer
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup of molasses
  • ½ cup of dark corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 5 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons of baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • Coarse sugar, for rolling the cookies
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Mix thoroughly and set aside.
  2. In the work bowl of your stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and mix until combined.
  4. Add the molasses, dark corn syrup, and vinegar. Mix until combined.
  5. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until a soft dough forms.
  6. Pop the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.
  7. When ready to bake the cookies, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While the oven is preheating, portion out heaping tablespoons of dough and roll them into balls. Then roll the dough balls in the coarse sugar to coat. Place the dough balls onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake the cookies for about 8-12 minutes until golden.
  9. Cool cookies for an hour on a cooling rack before devouring. Enjoy!
