molasses cookies

G made these for her snack.  You will need: 

170g unsalted butter, melted
170g light brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
170g molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
280g plain flour
2 teaspoons bicarb of soda
1 tablespoon mixed spice
80g caster sugar, for rolling cookies before baking

1. Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, and egg until smooth. Then add the molasses and vanilla extract.
2. In another bowl, sift together the flour, bicarb of soda and spice. Gradually add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until combined. Cover and chill dough for about 2 hours.
3. Preheat oven to 180oC and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Using your hands make round balls. Roll  the balls into sugar and place them onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
4. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire wrack to cool completely.
