    Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the butter, shortening and brown sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg, molasses and vanilla, and beat until well-combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

    Ingredients

    • 8 Tablespoon butter, slightly softened

    • 1/2 Cup vegetable shortening

    • 1 1/4 Cup brown sugar

    • 1 Large egg

    • 1 Tablespoon dark molasses

    • 1 Teaspoon vanilla

  • 4

    Add flour, cinnamon, ground ginger and salt, and mix. Try to roll a walnut-size ball between your palms. If the dough sticks to your hands and is too soft to roll, blend a bit more flour into the dough. Do not add too much, or your cookies will not spread properly and will toughen.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 Cup flour, plus more as needed

    • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon

    • 1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger

    • 1/4 Teaspoon salt

  • 5

    Roll the dough into balls, then give them a roll in a shallow bowl of coarse sugar. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet, then flatten each ball with the bottom of a drinking glass.

    Ingredients

    • As Needed turbinado sugar

    Bake the cookies for 7 minutes. Tap the baking sheet on the grill grate (this encourages chewier cookies), then rotate the pan 180°. Continue baking for 5 to 7 minutes longer, or until the cookies are lightly browned.
