Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Using a mix master (i.e. Kitchen Aid), or bowl w/ a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until creamy. This should take 2-5 minutes on high.
  2. Once creamed, add in the eggs (one at a time), until combined. Then, add in the vanilla extract and molasses. Mix until combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, prepare your dry ingredients. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet. Mix on low until combined. Dough will be sticky.
  5. Then, add in 1 cup of (Raisins or Chips). At this stage (when using separate add ins), Take the dough out and place it on a sheet of plastic wrap. Cut in 1/2, place one 1/2 back in the bowl + 1/2 cup add ins on low. Remove, add in the other half of add ins on low. Remove and wrap each batter in plastic wrap separately.
  6. Refrigerator for 30 minutes. Chill for no less than 30 minutes, and up to 1 hour. (If you need to prepare your dough in advance but are not ready to bake, just make sure to thaw your dough about 30 minutes before baking later that day, or the following).
  7. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  8. Prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. After 30 minutes, remove dough and scoop cookies on to baking sheet.
  9. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Make sure not to over bake (with these cookies, it’s tempting). You want a golden edge on the bottom. Remove them from the oven. Transfer to cooling rack or my fav, slide the cookies and the sheet right on to the counter top to cool.
  10. Lastly, pour a glass of your favorite milk and enjoy these delicious cookies!
