Redolent of cloves and ginger, these chewy molasses cookies are great for after school snacks.

About 2 dozen cookies | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in a medium bowl. Whisk egg white, 1 cup sugar, fruit puree, oil and molasses in a large mixing bowl. Add the dry ingredients and stir gently until combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray or line them with parchment paper.
  3. Place remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a shallow dish. Scoop out dough by the scant tablespoonful and, with lightly oiled hands, roll into 1-inch balls. Roll balls in sugar and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until golden on the bottom, 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
