How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.
