I've been on a search for how to make flat, bakery style, cookies. I still haven't found the secrets I'm looking for, but in the process I found this cookie, which is pretty much perfect. Now If I could just figure out how to get my sugar and chocolate chip cookies to be this texture!
Makes 2 dozen
12 Tbsp (1 and a half sticks) butter, melted
1 cup sugar
¼ cup molasses
Beat, then add to above:
Mix separately, then add in to wet ingredients & mix together :
1 ¾ cups flour
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
Bake at 350 for 8-10 Minutes. The outside should look dark and firm, but he centers might be a bit soft.
I recommend baking on parchment paper.
Leave plenty of room between cookies - these will spread a LOT. The dough will be very sticky and wet, and this will make a flat, chewy, cookie.
Above - slightly puffy right out of the oven
