List of Ingredients
For the cookies:
◦ 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
◦ 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
◦ ½ cup granulated sugar
◦ 1 egg
◦ ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
◦ ¼ teaspoon salt
◦ 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
◦ 1 teaspoon baking soda
◦ 1 tablespoon milk
For the spice coating:
◦ 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
◦ ½ teaspoon cinnamon
◦ ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
◦ ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
◦ ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
◦ ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
◦ ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line two sheet pans with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, salt, flour, and baking soda, and mix with a spatula. Add the milk last. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to make scooping easier.
To make the spice coating:
In a small bowl, combine the sugar and all the spices. Mix with a fork to combine.
Use a soup spoon to scoop out roughly 2 tablespoons of dough. Form the dough into a ball, roll it in the sugar and spice coating, and then place it on one of the sheet pans. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Space the dough 4 inches apart, as these cookies spread.
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool for 30 minutes. Store in an airtight container.
