This Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Cookies recipe has a sweet, spiced gingerbread flavor and the most amazing texture. They come together in minutes and stay soft for days, making them perfect for all your holiday baking needs!
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and molasses, and mix until well combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, and spices until evenly combined.
Working slowly, add the dry ingredients to the bowl of wet ingredients, mixing until a smooth dough forms.
Cover the bowl of dough tightly with plastic wrap, and transfer it to the refrigerator to chill. Preheat the oven and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Use a small cookie scoop or spoon to portion the dough into equal-sized balls, and roll them in a cinnamon-sugar mixture.
Place the cookie dough balls on the prepared baking sheets, leaving space in between each piece.
Transfer the cookies to the oven, and bake just until the edges are set.
