Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line half sheet pans with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a mixing bowl and set aside. 
  3. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter until smooth and fluffy. Add the sugars and mix. Add the molasses and mix. Add the egg whites in two batches, mixing to combine after each addition. Add the dry ingredients in three batches, mixing to combine after each addition. 
  4. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls, and then roll each ball in a little granulated sugar until fully coated. Transfer to the prepared sheet pans, leaving 1-inch of space between the cookies. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on wire racks and store in an airtight container.
