Spiced Cinnamon Latte Cookies

Makes 3 dozen cookies

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, pepper, and cloves.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the shortening and sugar on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low and beat in the egg, molasses, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture, mixing just until combined (do not overmix).
  • Place the granulated sugar on a plate. Wash your hands.
  • Now with your clean hands, roll heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls; roll in the sugar to coat. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Using a glass, press the balls to a ⅜-inch thickness and sprinkle with more granulated sugar.
  • Bake cookies for 6 minutes, and rotate to bake for another 5 mins, and until the edges are firm. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
