Diamond Mike’s Award-Winning Gingersnap Cookies

7 tablespoons unsalted butter melted but no longer warm to the touch.

1/2 cup granulated sugar (100g)

1/4 cup dark brown sugar.  (50g)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 teaspoons ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper. 

2 Tablespoons unsulphured molasses. 

1 egg

2 Tablespoons whole milk

1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (210g)

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

Additional granulated sugar for rolling.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. 

In a bowl combine all wet ingredients including white and brown sugar and wisk until consistent. In a separate bowl wisk all dry ingredients. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the first bowl and stir to make the dough. 

Scoop level tablespoons of dough. This should make about 24 thin cookies.
Scoop a full-rounded tablespoons of dough. This should make about 12 large cookies.
Hand-roll cookie balls.

Roll each ball into small cup of granulated sugar. Space balls equidistant on large cookie pan with parchment paper and allow ample room between each cookie for expansion. 

Bake 18 minutes for small cookies. 24 minutes for large cookies. Cookies will expand and naturally crack from the interaction of the baking soda. After removing from oven use the bottom of a flat glass to firmly smash down large cookies. This makes them a little thinner thinner and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Smash cookies while warm because they will quickly harden. 

Wait until cookies cool. You should feel a slight spicy burn on the back of your tongue when you swallow. This recipe should produce a nice heat-kick effect if spices are fresh but you can experiment with the ratio of spices to achieve desired taste.
