Brown Sugar Molasses Cookies

I was home bored one day so I decided to go into my kitchen and bake cookies.  I didn't want to follow a recipe soI just started adding ingredients that I had on hand and this is what I came up with.  They came out really delicious.  I made most of them plain but my husband wanted chocolate chip cookies so I took half the batter and added chocolate chips and although the ones with chocolate were delicious you really lost the brown sugar/molasses flavor of the cookie, the chocolate was just too over powering.  These are a keeper!!


1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
1 large egg
2 tablespoons molasses
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl cream together brown sugar and butter.  Add egg and molasses and beat until combined.  In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Add dry ingredients to wet a little at a time until fully incorporated.  Dough will be very thick and stiff.  Using a cookie scoop, make even sized balls of cookie dough and then roll each cookie ball in brown sugar and then  roll in your hands again to coat evenly.  Place cookies on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 13 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack and serve.
