This delicious twist on chocolate chip cookies leaves the house smelling of cinnamon and spice, and the chocolate chips make everything nice. Fantastic with a glass of milk.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone liner. Whisk together the flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, baking soda, and salt in a bowl until thoroughly combined.
  2. In a large bowl, mash vegetable shortening and sugar together until smooth and creamy; mix in the egg and molasses. Stir the flour mixture into the molasses mixture to make a smooth dough, and mix in the chocolate chips. Drop by scant tablespoon or small dough scoop about 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until slightly golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on sheets 1 to 2 minutes before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.

I used a mix of half butter, half shortening in this recipe and I doubled the chocolate chips. The recipe didn't specify which kind of chips to use so I just went with what I had on hand which was semi-sweet. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla but I didn't want that to affect the cookie's outcome so I added one more teaspoon of flour, just in case. I did chill the dough just about an hour just to firm up the dough slightly (and I put the dough in the fridge while the cookies were baking so the hot kitchen wouldn't soften the dough too much). This recipe made just enough cookies, not too much not too little. The spiced dough worked really well with the chocolate chips, I was pleasantly surprized as was my husband. We all loved them. Out of this whole recipe, less than half remain. Winning recipe!

I think this was a nice change. Used butter instead of shortening and only used a stick. Thanks for the recipe!!

This was definitely a nice change of pace. Normally I add way more spices than recipes call for but this one calls for just the right amount. Very easy cookie to make and will be great in the fall!! Thanks!!
