Because these are definitely on the rich side, I suggest making them small. I like to slightly underbake mine because I like them extra soft.

HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING

King Arthur Flour says this: “At 3,500 feet, add 1 more tablespoon per recipe. For each additional 1,500 feet, add one more tablespoon.”

Since I’m at 5,000 ft I added 2 tablespoons of flour.

    packed brown sugar
  • 1
    egg
  • 1/4
    cup
    molasses
  • 2 1/2
    cups
    all-purpose flour
    spooned into measuring cups
  • 1
    teaspoon
    baking soda
  • 2
    teaspoons
    cinnamon
  • 1
    teaspoon
    ground ginger
  • 1/2
    teaspoon
    ground cloves
  • 1/4
    teaspoon
    salt
  • 1/2
    cup
    sugar for rolling

Frosting:


  • ounces
    cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 
    cup
    butter, softened
  • 1/2 
    teaspoon
    vanilla
  • 2
    cups
    powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and molasses and mix until combined.

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and salt. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Roll 1.5 inch balls of dough and roll in sugar. The dough will be soft. If you want to chill it to make it easier to roll you can.

  4. Place on baking sheets at least 2 inches apart and bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cookies rest on the cookie sheet. They will continue to bake while cooling.

  5. For the frosting: In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Once the ingredients have combined, whip the frosting until fluffy. If your ingredients are softened you shouldn’t have to add any milk but you can add a dash if needed.

  6. To frost the cookies, spread a small layer on one cookie and top with another cookie. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
