Recommended Servings
Makes about 65 medium-size cookies
3 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
¾ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¾ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed and at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1/3 cup molasses
½ tablespoon whole milk
½ tablespoon distilled white vinegar
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put the flour, baking soda, salt and spices into a small mixing bowl. Whisk to combine; reserve. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugars. Using a Cuisinart® Hand or Stand Mixer fitted with the mixing beaters/paddle, mix until light and creamy. Add the egg and yolk, one at a time; mix until fully combined. Add half of the reserved dry ingredients and mix on low. Once almost fully combined, add the molasses, milk and vinegar. Increase to medium-low speed and mix until homogenous. Add remaining ingredients and mix until completely combined. Fit the Cuisinart® Electric Cookie Press with desired disc*, as instructed on page 2. Load the cookie dough to the MAX fill line. Press cookie dough out onto an ungreased/unlined baking pan, about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until just set. Cool cookies before removing from pan.
*Note: Due to the consistency of this cookie dough, we recommend using discs 3, 4, 5, 6 or 10.

Servings: Makes about 65 medium-size cookies
