Whoa! Whole wheat cookies!
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
adapted from Betty Crocker. Chewy, spicy, delish.
  • 1½ sticks butter (unsalted or salted)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1¼ tsp cinnamon (note teaspoons, not Tablespoons...)
  • ¾ tsp allspice
  • ½ tsp ground ginger (powder)
  • ¼ cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (I've used both regular WW and WW pastry flour)
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Beat butter, sugar, baking soda, salt and spices in bowl until smooth. Then beat in molasses, egg, then flour. Refrigerate for 30 minutes up to 24 hours (cover.) (I did mine for about 15 and it was fine...) Scoop out cookies with Tablespoon measure (a little less) and put on sheet. Bake for 11-12 minutes. (I did mine for 11 each time on the nose. They are a little puffy, but almost instantly will deflate and get the nice cracks on top.) SOOO good!!!
