Ingredients
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Chocolate hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Adjust the oven rack to middle. Line 2 sheet trays with parchment.

  • Whisk the brown sugar in a large bowl to get rid of the lumps. Add the butter and stir until smooth. Stir in the molasses, vanilla and egg, mixing until well combined.

  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, ginger , cinnamon, cloves and salt in a separate medium bowl. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture and stir until well incorporated and smooth, about 2 minutes.

  • Pour the granulated sugar onto a plate. Divide the dough into 12 equal-size balls and roll them in the sugar. Arrange the dough on the prepared sheet trays at least 2 inches apart. Press gently to flatten. Bake about 17 minutes. Let cool completely on the sheet trays.

  • Spread the chocolate hazelnut spread between 2 cookies and sandwich them together. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
