These were surprisingly delicious. I made them the other night for Bunco along with the Chocolate Sugar Cookies. Everyone went for the chocolate ones but not these so I encouraged them to give it a go and they realized how great these were too!
2 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon molasses
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 cup sugar, for rolling
1 Heat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment.
2 Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
3 Beat butter until creamy, then add brown sugar and molasses and beat until fluffy. Add egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and beat until combined. Add flour and beat just until combined.
4 Place sugar in a medium bowl. Form cookies into 2 tablespoon sized balls and roll in sugar. Place 8 cookies on each pan.
5 Bake until sides are set and bottoms are light golden brown, about 10 -11 minutes.
6 Let cool 5 – 10 minutes on pan before removing to rack to cool completely.
