Description

From Sarah Kieffer’s 100 Cookies


Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups + 1 tablespoon (364 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 227 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1.75 cups (350 grams) dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon molasses
  • 1 large egg + 1 large yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (100 grams) granulated sugar, for rolling

Instructions

  1. Adjust an oven rack to the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Line three sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and the molasses and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg, yolk, and vanilla, and beat on medium speed until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat on low speed until just combined.
  4. Place the granulated sugar in a medium bowl.
  5. Form the cookies into 1.5-oz (45 g) balls (2 tablespoons). Roll each ball in the sugar and place 8 cookies on each sheet pan.
  6. Bake one pan at a time, rotating halfway through baking. Bake until the sides are set and the bottoms are light golden brown, 1o to 11 minutes.
  7. Transfer the sheet pan to a wire rack and let the cookies cool for 5 to 10 minutes on the pan, then remove them and let them cool completely on the wire rack. Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
