Soft Baked Caramel Ginger Cookies
Serves: 36
  • ½ C butter, softened
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ¼ C sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ C molasses
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 2¼ C all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground cloves
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • ½ C caramel bits
  • ¼-1/3 C sugar, for rolling dough in
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars. Add the egg and beat until creamy. Beat in molasses and water until well-combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Dough will be stiff. You may need to finish stirring with a wooden spoon. Stir in caramel bits.
  4. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll in sugar to coat. Place dough on cookie sheet. Press dough to indent slightly.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies puff and edges just start to turn golden brown. Allow cookies to cool for a couple of minutes on a cookie sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
