Browned butter brings a modern twist to a 19th-century cookie recipe

Chewy Molasses Spice Cookies with Browned Butter Icing

These generously sized cookies are soft and cake-like. Spiced with cinnamon and ground ginger and made with just 4 tablespoons of butter, their flavor is mostly about the bittersweet, subtly smoky notes of molasses. Use either mild or “robust” (or “full”) molasses, but avoid blackstrap molasses; its potent flavor will overpower the spices and make the cookies taste harsh and bitter. A browned butter icing gives the cookies a rich, elegant finish. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days.

Tip

Don’t ice the cookies until they have cooled to room temperature. If they are still warm, the icing may become too soft to spread.
