  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp clove
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/3 cup dark rum


  1. Whisk together the flour, spices, salt and baking soda, and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar, then beat in the molasses.
  3. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the rum.
  4. Using a cookie or muffin scoop, scoop out round balls of dough somewhere in size between a ping-pong ball and a golf ball, and place the balls on a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet.
  5. Bake the cookies in a preheated 375°F oven for 11 to 12 minutes, until they crack on top but haven't yet browned around the edges.
