Have you seen or tried this highly recommended recipe at Epicurious?

These soft chewy cookies with traditional Christmas flavours are extremely easy and fuss-free to bake. 

I believe anybody can bake these yummy cookies! Simply mix, chill, coat with sugar and bake... Please watch my video.

Note: In my video, you will see that I chilled the dough with layers of baking paper in between them but they will still stick on each other a little. Thus, I would suggest chilling the dough in a single layer lined with non-stick baking paper if you can.

One important thing to mention before proceeding to the recipe...

Please do not reduce the amount of added sugar because the cookie base without the sugar coating is actually not too sweet and it require this amount of sugar to make it chewy. If you really want to cut the sugar, you should coat the cookies with the coarse sugar a little less generously.

Here's the recipe that is adapted from Epicurious

Makes 35 cookies

50g (1/4 cup) dark muscovado sugar or dark brown sugar
65g (1/3 cup) caster sugar
120g (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
110g (1/3 cup) mild-flavored (light) or robust-flavored (dark) molasses, not blackstrap
1 large egg, about 50g without the shell at room temperature
300g (2 cups) all-purpose / plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon or more if desired
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground all-spice

about 1/4 cup demerara or coarse white sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 190°C / 375°F. Line baking trays with baking papers.

Add both sugars, butter, molasses and egg in a large mixing bowl, then mix to combine.

Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, all-spice into the butter mixture and mix until combined. Do not over-mix. Use your hands to gather all crumbs to form a soft dough. 

Divide dough into 20g per portion and roll them into balls. Refrigerate for about 1 hr or until firm. Coat the cookie dough generously with demerara or coarse white sugar and arrange the cookies with about 5 cm apart on the prepared trays.

Tip: Cookie dough can be made and rolled into balls 2 weeks ahead and freeze until required. To assemble and bake, allow the frozen dough to sit at room temperature for about 30 mins before coating with sugar.

Bake cookies, rotating the position of the baking trays halfway for 8 mins or until cookies are puffed, cracked, and just set around edges. Do not over-bake chewy cookies.

Allow cookies to cool slightly on the trays for about 10 mins. Transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to one week at room temperature.

Happy Baking
