Take those traditional fall flavors (like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves) and combine them with molasses and ginger for a tasty cookie you'll want to make all season. They also make a great gift for neighbors, teachers, and coworkers. That is, if you can stand to give them away—they're just that good. Ingredients 4 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled 2 teaspoons baking soda 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature 2 cups packed light brown sugar 2 large eggs 1/2 cup molasses 1/4 cup canola oil 1/2 cup granulated or coarse decorating sugar Directions Heat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves; set aside. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar on medium-high until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, then the molasses and oil. Reduce mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Place the granulated sugar on a plate. Shape the dough into balls (about 2 tablespoons each) and, a few at a time, roll in the sugar to coat. Place 3 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until the edges are firm but the centers are still slightly soft, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
