Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons gingerbread spice (see notes)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 fake egg
- 1/2 cup molasses
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon neutral tasting oil (such canola or vegetable)
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream together on medium speed butter and sugar until well combined, about 2 minutes. Add in fake egg, molasses, and vanilla; mix until combined. Gradually add the flour mixture on low speed, until combined.
Divide dough into two equal portions. Form each half into a round disk, and wrap in plastic. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, up to 4 days.
When you're ready to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Roll each portion out, between two sheets of parchment paper, to 1/4 to 1/8-inch thickness. Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into your desired shapes. Then transfer them to the prepared cookie sheet, spacing cookies about 1-inch apart.
Bake for 7 - 8 minutes, or until slightly set. Let sit for 2-3 minutes and then use a metal spatula to transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
If you don't have gingerbread spice blend you can add 2 teaspoons ground ginger + 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon + 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves + 1/4 teaspoon allspice.
