Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 8-10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes
Serving size: 1 cookie
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and salt together in a medium mixing bowl. By hand or using an electric mixer, whisk together egg, butter, granulated sugar, and molasses in a separate large mixing bowl until combined. Add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) to the wet ingredients and stir until just combined.
Place the dark brown sugar into a large shallow bowl. Break up any clumps.
Scoop one tablespoon of dough into your hands and roll the dough into a ball. Then, roll the dough ball in the dark brown sugar to coat. Place onto the cookie sheet. Repeat until there’s no dough remaining, placing each dough ball about two inches apart.
Using a spatula, lightly press down on the dough balls to slightly flatten. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until cookies are puffed and slightly cracked.
Remove from oven. Let cool slightly, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Store cookies in an airtight container for up to one week or freeze cookies for up to six months.
