Time: 20 minutes | Yield 2 dozen cookies


2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

¾ teaspoon ground cardamom

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 large egg

½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

⅓ cup granulated sugar

⅓ cup dark molasses

¼ cup (packed) dark brown sugar

Smoked Bourbon Barrel sugar for rolling (or other coarse sugar)

How to make it

Place racks in lower and upper thirds of oven; preheat to 375°.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and salt. Whisk to combine. In a large bowl, whisk egg, melted butter, granulated sugar, molasses, and brown sugar. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until combined.

Place smoked sugar in a shallow bowl. Scoop out dough by the tablespoonful and roll into balls (if dough is sticky, chill 20 minutes). Roll in sugar and place on 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing 2” apart.

Bake cookies, rotating baking sheets halfway through, until cookies are puffed, cracked, and just set around edges (be careful not to overbake) about 8–10 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
