These easy Butterscotch Gingerbread Cookies are loaded with classic holiday flavor. They are warmed with molasses, cinnamon, and ginger and the sweet, nostalgic flavor of butterscotch.
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
- ¾ teaspoon ground cloves
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- ⅓ cup molasses (like Grandma's Original Unsulphured Molasses)
- 11 ounces butterscotch baking chips like Nestle Toll House Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and salt in a small mixing bowl. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, beat the butter, sugar, egg and molasses until creamy. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until well blended. Use a spoon to stir in the morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto parchment paper lined or ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until the cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
