What You Will Need

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp ginger
  • 2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • mini chocolate chips for decoration


  • Combine butter, peanut butter, and both sugars until light and fluffy. Add two eggs, molasses, and vanilla until thoroughly combined. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add flour to sugar mixture and stir until dough forms. Cover and chill dough for 2 - 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll out to desired thickness. Use a flour covered surface and rolling pin. A thicker cookie will be more chewy while a thinner one will be more crisp. Cut out desired shape and place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Place mini chocolate chips on your men if desired immediately upon removal from oven. Allow cookies to cool and enjoy!
