How to Make It

Step 1

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, sugar, molasses, and bourbon until smooth and well blended, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

Step 2

In another bowl, mix flour, ground ginger, and salt. Stir into butter mixture until well blended. Stir in almonds.

Step 3

Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, 3 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

Step 4

Bake cookies in a 300° oven until slightly darker brown, 22 to 28 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.

Step 5

With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool. If hot cookies start to break, slide a thin spatula under them to release; let stand on pan to firm up, 2 to 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely.
