Makes 10-12 cookies or 5-6 sandwiches

1 cup (200g) sugar
¾ cup (180 g) butter
1/3 cup (80 ml) molasses
1 egg
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla extract
2 cups (240 ml) flour
1 ½ tsp (7.5ml) baking soda
1 tsp (5 ml) salt
1 ½ tsp (7.5ml) ground cinnamon
1 ½ tsp (7.5 ml) ground ginger
½ tsp (2.5ml) ground cloves
2 tbsp (30 ml) candied ginger, diced
¼ cup (50 g) sugar, for rolling cookie dough in

Pre-heat oven to 350F (176C).

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add molasses, and beat, then add egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, ginger and cloves. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, in thirds, beating in between each addition and scraping down the bowl as needed.

Then add the candied ginger. Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.

Scoop out dough with an ice cream scoop, and then roll in sugar.

Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet leaving room to spread.

Bake 15 mins until cookies are set and begin to show cracks.

Allow to cool completely, assemble sandwiches with 1-2 scoops of ice cream, place assembled sandwiches on a cookie sheet and freeze for at least 1 hour (overnight even better) until ready to serve! Enjoy!

    What a great idea! My fav cookie to make at Christmas is a ginger cookie sandwich with cream cheese filling. I love the idea of changing it up for summer with ice cream!!

    i love the taste of molasses in desserts! my favourite is a cake called Parkin (I think its mainly a UK thing, not sure what the US equivalent is? maybe its just ginger cake) that we eat on Bonfire Night on 5th November. its rich and almost sickly sweet but its so delicious and decadent, the more molasses the better in my opinion!

    Hi, Beth. Your sandwiches look simply delish. What do you love about ice cream sandwiches, and when will you make No Bake Raspberry Bars?

    Thanks Beth I was literally checking every 5 minutes!

    I don't want to seem greedy (sorry if I am) can you make a video on how to make brioche. It just that no other famous YouTuber like you have made a recipe on this!

    Thank you, TGT!

    Liking this video right when it starts because I know it's gonna be great! I would love to see some gluten free white chocolate macadamia nut cookies as they were my favorite cookie before I was diagnosed with celiac. This looks great by the way!

    Looks beautiful Beth as always. I love how you produce your videos; clear, concise, inspiring and you have the most relaxing and calming voice making it even easier to enjoy your content. I don't know if you have made this yet if I have I will go back in your archives to try and find it (even though I have looked and didn't see it). Could you make Lemon Meringue Pie? Its my pa and grandpa's favourite and would love to be able to make it for them. Thank you, jade x
