6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 large egg
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk or cream
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter (not natural or old-fashioned)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°F. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt and spices together. In a bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until creamy, about 3 minutes. Beat in molasses and egg. Stir in flour mixture.
Form dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake until centers are still slightly soft, about 12 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Beat confectioners' sugar, milk, peanut butter and vanilla until creamy. Spread cookies with glaze; let stand until set.
Just made this recipe and cannot form dough into balls -bowl of crumbly ingredients that don't begin to hold together. Tried a few and they bake into hard lumps. Have checked measurements and am confident I measured correctly. Would like a way to salvage the rest of the dough.
