  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup dark molasses not blackstrap
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 1/4 cups cake flour
  • 4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ounces melting chocolate
  • ginger salt optional


  • Cream together butter and sugar. I used the paddle attachment of a kitchen aid on medium speed. Add in eggs one at a time. Add molasses until incorporated. Add vanilla.Sift together cake flour and remaining dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients a cup at a time to the creamed sugar/butter mixture until fully incorporated.Wrap into three discs in plastic.
  • Chill for at least one hour.
  • Take each disc out one at a time. Roll to 1/4” and cut with gingerbread cookie cutter.
  • Bake at 350 for 11 minutes. Allow to cool.
  • To add chocolate drizzle, melt chocolate in microwave at power 5 and check every 60 seconds, stirring to just melted enough to be able to drizzle, using a fork.
