Chocolate Ginger Cookies

These chewy cookies are a Christmas favorite in my house.  I love the combination of ginger & chocolate and the cookies have a little zip that separates them from the sweet, sweetness of the season.


Recipe is from Cookie Confessions

Chocolate Ginger Cookies

2 cups flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup molasses
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate, chopped or mini chips (I added more - about 2/3 cup)
additional sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and all spices, set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light. Beat in egg, followed by molasses, vanilla and balsamic vinegar. Gradually stir in the sifted dry ingredients mixing until flour is incorporated. Stir in chocolate chunks. Scoop dough into balls and roll in sugar. Press lightly to flatten and bake for 10-12 minutes.
