Salted Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Salted Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Ingredients

  1. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  3. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  5. 3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  6. 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  7. 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  8. 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  9. 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  10. 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  11. 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  12. 1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
  13. 1 egg - I used jumbo size
  14. 2 ounces semi-sweet baking bar - 16 pieces for us
  15. Coarse or kosher sea salt - amount varies by taste

Instructions

  • 1.Sift the three cups of flour together in a large mixing bowl. Add sifted cocoa powder, baking soda and salt as well! Set bowl aside.
  • 2. In an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, white sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves until the mixture is light and fluffy. It was two minutes for us.
  • 3. Melt the chocolate baking pieces in the microwave or on the stove.
  • 4. Then add the egg, molasses, melted chocolate mixture and continue beating on medium speed for another two minutes.
  • 5. On low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients.
  • 6. Mix until well combined.
  • 7. Transfer the dough to a plate and flatten it into a disk. Cover it with plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
  • 8. Preheat the oven to 350 and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • 9. Put flour on a flat work surface and roll your dough to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. I had to separate the dough into quarters and only work with a quarter at a time.
  • 10. Use your moose cookie cutter (or cookie cutter of choice) and cut out as many cookies as you can.
  • 11. Place the cookies on the lined cookie sheets about one inch apart then gather all the dough scraps into a ball and place into the fridge until you're ready for a new batch.
  • 12. Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes until slightly raised. Using a spatula, remove the cookies from the cookie sheets, transferring to a cooling rack.
  • Enjoy!
