  • sticks of butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda

Instructions

  1. Mix molasses, dark brown sugar, and spices in the bowl of a mixer with paddle attachment. Add in the stick and a half of butter and mix for about 1 minute. Add in flour and baking soda and while mixing add one egg. Let the dough rest in fridge over night. This will help enhance the spices.
